ASCI Announces 3 Newly Elected Members From Yale

December 21, 2023

The society honors clinicians who enhance their profession by doing impactful research

Three Yale School of Medicine faculty are among 100 new members elected to the American Society for Clinical Investigation (ASCI). They are E. Jennifer Edelman, MD, MHS, AAHIVS, professor of medicine (general medicine); Madhav Menon, MD, MBBS, associate professor of medicine (nephrology); and F. Perry Wilson, MD, MSCE, associate professor of medicine (nephrology) and of public health (chronic disease epidemiology).

E. Jennifer Edelman is certified as an internist and an HIV specialist, and in addiction medicine. She provides care at the Yale New Haven Hospital Center for Infectious Diseases. Her research focuses on addressing substance use among individuals with—and at substantial risk for—HIV in clinical and community-based settings.

Madhav Menon is a transplant nephrologist whose work focuses on mechanisms underlying the development of longer-term injury to transplanted kidneys, which is an important cause of transplant failure and return to dialysis worldwide. His group has revealed how common genetic variations in kidney donors or recipients can increase the risk of injury to transplanted kidneys.

F. Perry Wilson uses patient-level data and advanced analytics to personalize medicine for each individual patient. His research interests focus on the interface of digital health with medical care and extend to clinical-decision support interventions, wearable devices, and artificial intelligence. He is the creator of the popular online course, Understanding Medical Research: Your Facebook Friend Is Wrong, on the Coursera platform, and the author of How Medicine Works and When It Doesn’t.

They will be officially inducted in April.

The ASCI is a nonprofit medical honor society composed of more than 3,000 physician-scientists representing all medical specialties. The society “is dedicated to the advancement of research that extends understanding of diseases and improves treatment, and members are committed to mentoring future generations of physician-scientists.”
