Revision as of 19:29, 26 October 2008
Anthony Sebastian, M.D.
Professor of Medicine
University of California San Francisco (UCSF)
UCSF Faculty Affiliations:
Department of Medicine, Division of Nephrology
UCSF's Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI):
--CTSI Strategic Opportunities Support Center
Though I packed my curriculum with biology, I majored in chemistry in college, at UCLA, receiving a B.S. in 1960. I believed in chemistry as a foundation for biology. After working in the chemical industry for one year, I entered the UCSF School of Medicine, graduating in 1965 as runner-up for the Gold-Headed Cane Award. I remained at UCSF for post-graduate studies, including a fellowship in Nephrology under the mentorship of Dr. R. Curtis Morris, Jr., with whom I have maintained a productive collaborative relationship until the present time.
My research, in collaboration with Morris and others, has focused on acid-base and electrolyte physiology and pathophysiology, emphasizing an integrated approach encompassing endocrine, nutrition, skeletal, and cardiovascular physiology. My contributions earned election to the American Society for Clinical Investigation and the Association of American Physicians. In recognition of our joint contributions in research and patient care, Morris and I together received the Belding H. Scribner Medal from the American Society of Nephrology.
In the teaching arena, I established a medical student elective course in Renal Pathophysiology, which I directed and taught in for 13 years. For 10 years, I served as faculty facilitator in small-group sessions in the Foundations of Patient Care course.
In the administrative arena, I served on the Medical School’s Curriculum Committee for five years, helped launch the Chancellor’s Diversity Committee, and beginning in the mid-70’s, helped Dr. Morris administer the Moffitt/MZ General Clinical Research Center, culminating as co-director of the unit. In 2002, I received the UCSF School of Medicine’s Alumnus of the Year Award.
I work now part-time (salary-wise, not time-wise) as Professor of Medicine (recalled), and spend most of my time working in continued research projects with three collaborative groups, writing manuscripts and book chapters, peer-reviewing manuscripts, serving on the Steering Committee of UCSF's Clinical and Translational Science Institute's Strategic Opportunities Support Center, reviewing molecular medicine proposals for grant support from UCSF's Resource Allocation Program, and writing and editing for Citizendium.
I write to learn, and read to write.
Specializations: formal education and independent scholarship
