Distinguished Honoree

 

Lawrence Holzman, MD

University of Pennsylvania, Perelman Center for Advanced Medicine


Dr. Holzman’s scientific expertise in cell biology, cell signaling, podocyte biology and translational science is focused on understanding the molecular basis of glomerular disease. He is the C. Mahlon Kline Professor of Medicine and Chief of the Renal Electrolyte and Hypertension Division at the University of Pennsylvania. He assumed leadership of the Renal Division at the University of Pennsylvania in 2009, directing and strengthening his faculty's tradition of excellence in research, teaching and clinical care. Dr. Holzman is an expert in the care of patients with glomerular disease, regularly lecturing on the subject and serving as a consultant to industry. Until 2008, Dr. Holzman's research focused primarily on the biology of the glomerular podocyte, a unique epithelial cell that appears to play a central role in most forms of glomerular disease. He continues to make key observations that contribute to our understanding of the functional role of the podocyte slit diaphragm in podocyte actin cytoskeletal dynamics. Nine years ago, Dr. Holzman joined with his colleague from the University of Michigan, Dr. Matthias Kretzler, to compete for an NIH-funded rare disease consortium, the Nephrotic Syndrome Study Network (NEPTUNE, PI Kretzler). The University of Michigan was awarded this project in 2009, and since then Dr. Holzman has served as a consortium leader and project co-director. Dr. Holzman wrote the original grant application for NEPTUNE with Dr. Kretzler and since that time, he has been intimately involved in all aspects of creating, planning and implementing this project. Dr. Holzman is also the Principal Investigator of one of four Participating Clinical Centers within the CureGN consortium, an NIDDK-sponsored longitudinal observational study of non-inflammatory glomerular disease. Dr. Lawrence Holzman has been a long-time member of NephCure’s Scientific Advisory Board and has also served on the International Podocyte Conference Committee. He has been a featured speaker at various NephCure scientific and educational symposia.
