Division Says Goodbye to Dr. Andrew Malone

Andrew Malone is returning to his homeland of Ireland to take a position at St. Vincent’s University Hospital in Dublin. 

WashU Nephrology bids farewell to transplant nephrologist Andrew Malone, MB, BCh, BAO, MD, who is returning to his homeland of Ireland to take a position at St. Vincent’s University Hospital in Dublin. 

Dr. Malone came to WashU for a fellowship in transplantation nephrology before joining our division in 2015 as Assistant Professor of Medicine.  In 2020, he received an American Society for Clinical Investigation Council Young Physician-Scientist Award, a prestigious recognition of physician-scientists who are early in their first faculty appointment and have made notable achievements in their research.  He was a recipient of a 2021 Early Career Development Award from the Central Society for Clinical and Translational Research, one of the oldest academic medical societies in the Midwest, and he was chosen to join the JASN Editorial Fellows mentorship program, 2021-2023, to learn the editorial processes involved in publishing peer-reviewed papers.  He was also a member of the Policy and Advocacy Committee for the American Society of Nephrology and among advocates joining the American Association of Kidney Patients who met with Capitol Hill lawmakers for the 2022 Kidney Health Advocacy Day.  

“I loved working at WashU, an amazing community of researchers and medics where I have made good friends and colleagues.”

As a scientist, Malone has reached the forefront of the rapidly evolving field of transplantation genetics.  His research focuses on using single-cell RNA-seq methods to study the transcriptional and molecular responses in acute antibody-mediated rejection.  He was part of the team to first publish on the application of single cell RNA-seq to single core kidney transplant biopsy samples.  See more about the Malone Lab’s research here.

We wish Dr. Malone all the best. He will be sorely missed!
