Support Research in the Department of Internal Medicine

Philanthropic support from donors allows the Department of Internal Medicine to conduct innovative research and provide high-quality patient care.

In September 2012, internationally renowned kidney disease physician and scientist Jochen Reiser, MD, PhD, joined Rush University Medical Center as the new chairperson of internal medicine. A research leader in the field of proteinuric kidney disease, Reiser was instrumental in leading the initiative to obtain new, state-of-the-art research equipment for Rush that will help him and his team of researchers make more fundamental discoveries to transform medicine.

Research areas of accomplishment within the Department of Internal Medicine include populaton studies focused on aging and heart disease, HIV, hospital epidemiology, cancer, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases, the relationship of gut flora to disease states, and many others.

Your donation will have a direct impact on patient care by equipping our physicians and researchers with the best equipment and enabling them to continue making remarkable discoveries that will transform medicine and improve the quality of care provided.
