Dr. Jochen Reiser简介

Jochen Reiser is the chairman of the Department of Medicine at Rush University Medical Center and the Ralph C. Brown, MD professor of Medicine at Rush University.

Dr. Reiser is a world-renowned research leader in the field of kidney disease with a heavy focus on molecular biology and genetics. He has published more than 145 papers, many of them in highest impact journals. His contributions range from identification of circulating factor suPAR in focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) as well as to general mechanisms of chronic kidney disease (CKD). His work started new fields and significantly advanced new treatment for renal diseases.

Dr. Reiser directs a NIH-funded research laboratory in biomedical investigation of the kidney. He is a member of the American Society for Clinical Investigation (ASCI), the American Clinical and Climatological Society (ACCA) and the Association of American Physicians (AAP).

He graduated from the Ruprecht Karls University of Heidelberg, Germany and served his residency in internal medicine at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York.  He completed his fellowship in nephrology at Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham and Women’s Hospital at Harvard Medical School in Boston. He then was an assistant professor at Harvard Medical School and the founding director of the program in glomerular disease at the Massachusetts General Hospital.

Prior to arriving at Rush in September of 2012, Dr. Reiser was a professor of medicine, anatomy and cell biology, vice chairman for research in the department of medicine, and chief of the division of nephrology and hypertension at University of Miami Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine. There, he also served as the Interim Chairman of Medicine.

In September 2016, Dr. Reiser received the Franz Volhard Award of the German Society of Nephrology for his wide contributions to Medicine and Nephrology.
