Faculty Member Receives Prestigious Physician-Scientist Award

Mark Anderson, MD, PhD, has been elected to the American Society for Clinical Investigation (ASCI). This is one of the nation’s oldest and most respected medical honor societies that pays tribute to young physician-scientists. Since 1908, over 2,800 physician-scientists have been elected to the Society for their outstanding records of scholarly achievement in biomedical research.

Because members must be 45 years of age or younger at the time of their election, membership reflects accomplishments by its members relatively early in their careers. Dr. Anderson is one of only a handful of researchers around the world making significant progress in solving the problem of autoimmunity by exploring the molecular mechanisms that underlie autoimmune disorders. In less than ten years, Dr. Anderson has become a world leader in type 1 diabetes research, and a compassionate clinician who provides exemplary care for adult patients with diabetes.
