We’re honored to announce that Dr. Sandeep Mallipattu in the Division of Nephrology & Hypertension, has been appointed the title of Professor of Medicine with Tenure, Department of Medicine.
Dr. Mallipattu is Chief of the Division of Nephrology and Hypertension, Stony Brook Medicine, and now a DCI-Martin Liebowitz Professor of Medicine in the Renaissance School of Medicine, Stony Brook University. He is recognized for his research on identifying molecular mechanisms involved in the progression of chronic kidney disease. Specifically, he investigates the mechanisms by which modulating gene expression effects some of the most fundamental cellular processes in the kidney, with the ultimate goal of identifying novel pathways that could be targeted for therapy.
Dr. Mallipattu earned a BS in Biomedical Engineering at the University of California, San Diego, then earned his MD from Boston University School of Medicine and completed his Internal Medicine and Nephrology Fellowship at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.
Among his many accolades, Dr. Mallipattu was named a 2019 PECASE recipient (the highest honor bestowed by the US government to outstanding scientists and engineers at the outset of their independent research careers), a 2019 Stony Brook University Discovery Prize finalist and was recently elected to participate in the inaugural class of the SUNY Clinical Leadership Academy.
He is the Renaissance School of Medicine representative that is co-leading the The New York Consortium for Interdisciplinary Training in Kidney, Urological and Hematological Research with Columbia University and Albert Einstein College of Medicine. Just this past July, Dr. Mallipattu was also selected to serve as a member of the National Institute of Health's Pathobiology of Kidney Disease Study Section, Center for Scientific Review.
The Department of Medicine is deeply grateful for Dr. Mallipattu’s continued leadership, and we thank him for his consistent dedication to his kidney research mission, the division of Nephrology and Hypertension, our department, and our institution. Our heartfelt congratulations to him on this very well-deserved accomplishment, and we wish him continued success in his future endeavors and throughout his Stony Brook career.
