Lisa Satlin is the Herbert H. Lehman Professor of Pediatrics and Chair of the Department at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISMMS). She received her MD degree from Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, and completed a residency in Pediatrics at the Babies Hospital of Columbia University and a Pediatric Nephrology Fellowship at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. At the ISMMS, as Chief of the Division of Pediatric Nephrology (1997-2010), Dr. Satlin built an internationally respected academic division and an ACGME-accredited Pediatric Nephrology Fellowship training program, which has attracted both physician and research trainees interested in clinical nephrology and basic/translational research related to developmental nephrology, respectively. She continues to run an active NIH-supported laboratory, supported in part to serve as a national “Single Tubule Physiology Core” as part of an O’Brien Renal Research Center, focused on defining the mechanisms leading to the acquisition, maintenance and regulation of transepithelial transport in the renal collecting duct, the nephron segment responsible in the adult for the final regulation of salt and water homeostasis. Her research accomplishments have been recognized by her election to membership in the Society for Pediatric Research, the American Pediatric Society, and the Association of American Physicians.

Dr. Satlin has served as President of the American Society of Pediatric Nephrology and Councilor of the International Pediatric Nephrology Association. She completed two terms as Associate Editor of the American Journal of Physiology: Renal Physiology, and has participated in many study sections and grant-review groups for the NIH and the American Heart Association.
