chiragpThis year, ANIO is pleases to announce academic excellence award to Dr. Chirag Parikh. Dr. Parikh is a Professor of Medicine and the Division Director of Nephrology at Johns Hopkins University. He received his medical degree from Seth G.S. Medical College and KEM Hospital in Mumbai, India and subsequently completed his Nephrology fellowship and a PhD in Clinical Investigation at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center.

Dr. Parikh’s research focuses on the translation and validation of novel biomarkers for the diagnosis and prognosis of acute kidney injury. Progress in kidney diseases has been hamstrung by significant heterogeneity within the current disease definitions, which are largely based on serum creatinine. Dr. Parikh’s research has addressed this critical challenge by developing biomarkers of renal tubular injury, repair, and inflammation to dissect this heterogeneity. He has assembled multicenter longitudinal prospective cohorts for translational research studies across several clinical settings of acute kidney injury and chronic kidney disease for the efficient translation of novel biomarkers. Dr. Parikh’s research goal is to translate our understanding of pathophysiological mechanisms into clinical practice and to improve outcomes in patients with kidney disease.

Dr. Parikh has been the recipient of numerous honors and awards, including the 2017 Young Investigator Award from the American Society of Nephrology. He also was elected to the prestigious American Society of Clinical Investigation in 2018.

Please join us in congratulating Dr. Parikh on this award!
