We are pleased to annouce that Andreas Herrlich, MD, PhD joined the Division of Nephrology this month. Dr. Herrlich received his MD (1994) and PhD (1998) degrees from the Freie University Berlin, Berlin, Germany and performed graduate work on the ‘transactivation’ of receptor tyrosine kinases by stimuli that activate G-protein-coupled receptors. Dr. Herrlich received internal medicine training at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, where he also served as Chief Resident. He completed nephrology fellowship training at Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women’s Hospital and his postdoctoral fellowship was in the laboratory of Harvey Lodish, PhD, at the Whitehead Institute.
Dr. Herrlich had been on the faculty of Harvard Medical School since 2006 before assuming his current position as Associate Professor of Medicine at Washington University. His independent research laboratory focuses on understanding the biology of metalloprotease-dependent cleavage of proligands that activate epidermal growth factor receptors, particularly relating to kidney injury and repair. Joining him in the move to Washington University is Dr. Eirini Kefalogianni who has been appointed Instructor of Medicine.
