I was raised in Detroit, Michigan; and attended the University of Michigan for college and medical school. I came to the University of Minnesota in 1978 for my Internal Medicine residency—and have spent my entire adult life here. My professional career has focused on three themes:

  • Caring for patients with lung disease: I have served as medical director of the University of Minnesota lung transplant program since its inception in 1986; since then we have performed more than 1,000 lung transplants.
  • Advancing scientific knowledge related to organ transplant medicine: I have been PI of funded NIH P01 and R01 grants; as well as Co-I on multiple other research projects. I have authored or co-authored more than 200 peer-reviewed publications. At present, I am the site-PI for the Cystic Fibrosis Lung Transplant Consortium; and for the CMS-sponsored registry of extracorporeal photopheresis for bronchiolitis obliterans syndrome after lung transplantation
  • Mentoring and teaching medical students, trainees, and junior faculty members: Currently, I enjoy being a member of our medical school Faculty Advisor program--which has been immensely effective, earning a 95% “approval rating” from our students!

When not working, I enjoy relaxing with my family and friends, exercise, music, and travel.
