About

Biography

Dr. Elif Erkan received the prestigious SPR Fellow's Basic Research Award upon completion of her pediatric nephrology fellowship. She pursued a career as a physician scientist and continued to investigate the mechanism of proteinuria induced injury in proximal tubule cells following her fellowship. Her laboratory demonstrated an important link between endocytic adapter protein disabled-2 (Dab2) that binds to the cytoplasmic tail of albumin receptor megalin and protein kinase B (Akt). She received an NIH career development-KO8 award to support her studies elucidating the link between albumin endocytosis and cell signaling events.
