Eileen Chambers, MD, an associate professor of pediatrics and surgery in the Duke University School of Medicine, was recently elected to the Society for Pediatric Research (SPR). Chambers has 15 years of direct clinical experience creating and implementing immunosuppressive and infectious monitoring programs to improve clinical outcomes for children. Her research strives to advance the transplant care of children and has encompassed B and T cell immunology, allo- and auto-antibody production, and the development and treatment of post-transplant viral infections.
The mission of the Society for Pediatric Research is to foster the research and career development of investigators engaged in creating new knowledge that advances the health and well-being of children and youth. SPR membership signifies peer recognition of substantial achievements in pediatric research and is conferred on only those physician-scientists with impressive research records.
They will be inducted at the virtual Pediatric Academic Societies (PAS) Annual Meeting, April 30 - May 4, 2021.
According to Ann M. Reed, MD, Samuel L. Katz Distinguished Professor of Pediatrics and chair of the Department of Pediatrics, "Election to the SPR represents a true distinction, and Eileen is highly deserving of this recognition.”
