DOM Research Seminar Series

Thu, 01/11/2018 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

SPEAKERS: Frank C. "Chip" Brosius, III, MD
TOPIC: "Abnormal JAK-STAT signaling in acute and chronic kidney diseases"

Watch It LIVE!

Dr. Chip Brosius is a Professor of Medicine at the University of Arizona and Professor Emeritus of Internal Medicine and Physiology at the University of Michigan.  He was Chief of Nephrology at the University of Michigan for 13 years through 2016.  He was also Director of the University of Michigan George O’Brien Kidney Center until 2016.  His research has focused on diabetic kidney disease for more than 25 years.  He is one of multiple PIs on a NIH R24 grant that investigates the causes and treatments for diabetic complications and was one of 2 PIs of a recently completed Phase 2 clinical trial of JAK inhibitors in diabetic kidney disease.  He is a member of the Pathobiology of Kidney Disease (PBKD) study section for the NIH and is Associate Editor of Diabetes. Previously he served as Chair of the American Heart Association’s Kidney Council and as Chair of the Research Advocacy Committee for the American Society of Nephrology. 

His research focuses on:

  • identification of effective treatments and biomarkers for diabetic complications using systems biology and translational approaches
  • how glucose uptake promotes specific cellular signaling responses that lead to disease responses in diabetic kidney disease and other diabetic complications
  • testing new concepts of human diabetic kidney disease and its treatment in robust mouse models that his laboratory has generated and validated
  • testing small molecules for treatment of diabetic kidney disease in randomized controlled trials

About the DOM Researcg Seminar Series
The UA Department of Medicine Research Seminar Series began in September 2016 as a way to showcase the remarkable breadth of medical research conducted at the University of Arizona. It pairs a junior and senior investigator from different divisions who each speak for 20-25 minutes followed by 5-to-10-minute Q&A sessions. Each seminar is held on the second Thursday of the month between September and June, noon-1 p.m., UAHS Room 5403. They also are simulcast live to Banner – University Medical Center South, Conference Room 3030, 2800 E. Ajo Way, Tucson.

A light lunch is served in the style of grand rounds.
