Tanya Mayadas, Ph.D.Professor of Pathology, Center for Excellence in V at Brigham and Women's Hospital
Dr. Tanya Mayadas, PhD is a Professor of Pathology at Harvard Medical School and Staff Scientist at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Boston MA. She is internationally recognized for her work in immune and vascular cell mediated mechanisms of inflammation. She studies the mechanisms of leukocyte recruitment and associated organ damage in IgG-mediated autoimmune diseases that affect the kidney and delineates the signaling pathways that regulate these processes. In addition, her work identifies pathways regulating endothelial cell junction remodeling in the context of vascular permeability, which has implications for many inflammatory diseases. Her scientific contributions have been recognized by a Young Investigator award by the Society of Leukocyte Biology (1996), an American Heart Association Established Investigator Grant (2001), the Stewart-Niewiarowski Award for Women in Vascular Biology (2010) and the 2015 Distinguished Innovator Award from the Lupus Research Institute.
