Dr. Peter Reese wins distinguished researcher award from the american society of nephrology

Congratulations to CHIBE-affiliated faculty member Peter Reese, MD, PhD, who has won a Distinguished Researcher Award from the American Society of Nephrology.

Dr. Reese is an NIH-funded transplant nephrologist and epidemiologist and a professor of medicine at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine, Philadelphia, with secondary appointments in epidemiology and medical ethics.

The American Society of Nephrology noted some of Dr. Reese’s contributions including “co-leading the first kidney and heart trials of transplanting organs from donors with hepatitis C virus infection into uninfected recipients, followed by treatment with antiviral agents. This practice became widely adopted by North American transplant centers and enabled thousands of patients to receive transplants using organs that had been discarded in the past. Dr. Reese has also contributed many studies about ways to expand kidney transplantation through the wider use of kidneys from older and comorbid donors.”
