Aug 22, 2013

Thomas Weimbs, one of the world's leading experts on polycystic kidney disease and an associate professor in UC Santa Barbara’s Department of Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology and at the campus’s Neuroscience Research Institute, has been appointed as a member of the Center for Scientific Review’s Kidney Molecular Biology and Genitourinary Organ Development (KMBD) study section. The Center for Scientific Review is the portal for National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant applications and their review for scientific merit. “It is an honor to be a member of an NIH study section,” said Weimbs. “It goes to emphasize that there is a lot of medically relevant research being conducted at UCSB even though we don’t have a medical school here.”
