ASN Foundation for Kidney Research: Securing the Future

In Honor of Mitchell L. Halperin, MD

Donated By Tomokazu Souma, MD, PhD On April 14, 2017

Mitch is my wonderful mentor and inspired me to pursue my carrier as a physician scientist in nephrology. He kindly offered me an educational opportunity for me to join his lab for a month when I was a clinical fellow in Japan. Since that time, he remains to be my friend and teacher. I would like to thank Mitch again for inspiring many people like me and that is essential for improving our understanding of kidney disease and for better care of our patients. Cheers, Tomo
