Supervisor: Dr. Joseph V. Bonventre
Award: KRESCENT Fellowship
Institution: Brigham and Women's Hospital
Year: 2007-2010

Dr. Chih-Chang Wei obtained his Ph.D. in the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Montreal. He will complete his post-doctoral fellowship with Dr. Joseph Bonventre at the Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston where he will study kidney injury molecule-1 (KIM-1), which is strongly expressed in various diseased kidneys. Understanding the function of KIM-1 will provide important insight into the role of this protein in kidney injury and repair processes and may identify KIM-1 as an important therapeutic target for acute and chronic renal disease.
