About: History

Faculty Research:Nephrology

In Nephrology, Richard Hays devoted his research efforts to clarifying our understanding of the mechanism of action of vasopressin on water transport and established the presence of water channels in the cell membrane.

Detlef Schlondorff, now Professor of Medicine at the University of Munich, studied the role of prostaglandins and vasoregulatory hormones on renal glomerular function.

Pulmonary Diseases

In Pulmonary Diseases, M. Henry Williams, who was one of the College’s earliest faculty members, as a Visiting Assistant Professor of Physiology, was persuaded by Dr. London in 1959 to come here full time to run the Chest Service at Van Etten Hospital. He and Chang Shim conducted studies of the pathophysiology and treatment of various chronic pulmonary disorders, notably bronchial asthma. A

lso at Van Etten, Isidore Bobrowitz performed some of the early studies using ethambutol to treat pulmonary tuberculosis.

Rheumatology

In Rheumatology, David Hamerman, who subsequently became the Chairman of the Department of Medicine at Montefiore, and later formed and directed the Department’s Division of Geriatrics, conducted studies of the metabolism of hyaluronate, and John Sandson undertook immunologic studies in patients with various connective tissue diseases, especially systemic lupus erythematosus.
