The American Society for Clinical Investigation is proud to present the ASCI Scientific Sessions: a monthly spotlight on distinguished investigators and their contributions to biomedical research. The Scientific Sessions are free and open to all, with a goal to create a space for our community, beyond the ASCI’s annual meeting, to gather and celebrate discovery.

Jonathan S. Bromberg, MD, PhD, is Professor of Surgery and Microbiology and Immunology, Vice Chair for Research, Department of Surgery; Director of Research, Division of Transplantation; University of Maryland School of Medicine, and Adjunct Professor, Fischell Department of Bioengineering, University of Maryland, College Park.

Dr. Bromberg’s basic research focuses on T cell immunobiology, issues of migration, trafficking, secondary lymphoid organ structure and function, and lymphatic structure and function, and how these processes and structures influence T cell immunity and T cell tolerance in models of transplantation. Dr. Bromberg has an active clinical practice in solid organ transplantation, where he encounters and addresses immune system issues including cellular and humoral rejection, opportunistic infections, chronic viral disease, autoimmune organ failure, and immunosuppression medication side effects. He has had over 60 trainees in his lab, and is actively involved in teaching and mentoring.

Dr. Bromberg’s many honors include the National Kidney Foundation of Maryland, Kidney Champion Award (2014), and the MERIT Award, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (2021). Dr. Bromberg was elected as an Honorary member of the ASCI in 2023.

This event was moderated by Oliver Eickelberg, MD, FERS, ATSF, Professor of Medicine, Dorothy P. and Richard P. Simmons Endowed Chair for Pulmonary Research, and Vice Chair for Basic and Translational Science, University of Pittsburgh. Elected to ASCI in 2018, Dr. Eickelberg is Vice Chair of the ASCI Physician-Scientist Development Committee.
