Cleveland Clinic names nephrology chair

Cleveland Clinic has selected Crystal Gadegbeku, MD, as chair of nephrology at its Glickman Urological and Kidney Institute. 

Dr. Gadegbeku joins Cleveland Clinic from Philadelphia-based Temple University, where she served as a professor of medicine and section chief of nephrology, hypertension and kidney transplantation at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine. 

She has been involved in multidisciplinary studies focussed on developing precision kidney medicine. In her new role, she will oversee Cleveland Clinic's nephrology department, which is participating in a number of related studies funded by the National Institutes of Health. 

"Nephrology is emerging from being an under-recognized specialty with minimal innovation in care over the last decades to a field with novel discoveries on the horizon, emerging patient-centered management approaches and new opportunities to best treat and prevent kidney diseases,” Dr. Gadegbeku said

Dr. Gadegbeku earned her medical degree from the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, where she also completed her internal residency and nephrology fellowship. 

She succeeds Robert Heyka, MD, who has served as Cleveland Clinic's nephrology chair since 2014.
