Bryan Myers Distinguished Lectureship

Dr. Bryan Myers was the Division Chief for Nephrology at Stanford from 1984-2003, where he made major contributions in the pathophysiology of glomerular disease, and postischemic acute renal failure in human subjects. He also played a pioneering role in elucidating chronic cyclosporine nephropathy.

Through this annual lectureship, we honor Dr. Myers' legacy of academic research and collaboration by inviting a distinguished researcher in Nephrology to Stanford for a lecture and poster session. This year's speaker will be Dr. Ananth Karumanchi of Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California.
