Medicine Grand RoundsNovel Insights into Inflammatory Lung Disorders Through Studies in Rare Mendelian Diseases Anthony Shum, MD
Division of Pulmonary & Critical Care, UCSF
Robert L. Kroc Chair in Rheumatic & Connective Tissue Diseases II
*Understand the role of monogenic disorders in elucidating mechanisms of disease
*Learn about a new Mendelian syndrome of autoimmunity called the COPA syndrome
Anthony Shum is an Associate Professor of Medicine in the Department of Pulmonary and Critical Care at UCSF. After his clinical fellowship at UCSF, he received research training in immune tolerance as part of the Immunology Program at UCSF. The focus of his lab's research is to understand the pathogenesis of autoimmune lung diseases by intensively studying patients with these disorders and modeling their disease in mice. Through his work he identified a novel lung-specific antigen named BPIFB1 that is targeted in patients with autoimmune lung disease and demonstrated that autoantibodies to BPIFB1 could be used as a biomarker to detect patients with lung autoimmunity. His lab also recently helped discover the genetic basis of a novel Mendelian syndrome of autoimmunity manifested by lung and joint disease that is coined the COPA syndrome, based on the gene that is mutated in this disorder. Through his research Dr. Shum hopes to discover diagnostic and interventional targets that will ultimately lead to biomarkers and therapies that will directly impact patient care.

Geriatrics and Palliative Medicine Grand RoundsCynthia Brown, MD, MPH - "Mobility in the Hospitalized Older Adult" - Associate Professor and Director, UAB Division of Gerontology, Geriatrics and Palliative Care) This lecture will describe the physiologic effects of low mobility often seen during hospitalization. We will describe barriers and facilitators of hospital mobility. Finally, we will compare a number of different interventions designed to improve mobility during hospitalization and describe outcomes associated with these interventions.
Objectives: After attendance at this lecture, participants will be able to:
1. Describe changes associated with bed rest and low mobility during hospitalization
2. Identify common barriers and facilitators for hospital mobility
3. Summarize interventions that have been successfully used in the hospital setting to increase mobility

Medicine Grand RoundsAPOL1 Renal Risk Variants: A Friend and Foe Associate Professor in Residence
Division of Nephrology, UCSF
Core Investigator, Kidney Health Research Collaborative
*To recognize the potential role of APOL1 genetic variants in chronic kidney diseases that disproportionately affect individuals of African descent
*To learn about the potential benefits and risks of APOL1 genetic variants beyond chronic kidney disease
*To understand the clinical and research implications of the APOL1 genetic variants
Michelle Estrella is nephrologist and clinical investigator who recently joined the Division of Nephrology at UCSF/ SFVA. She completed her clinical and research training from Johns Hopkins University where she stayed on as faculty from 2006 to 2016. There, she was closely involved in clinical and research training as the Associate Nephrology Fellowship Program Director and Associate Director for the Renal Disease Epidemiology Training Program.
Her research has aimed to improve the understanding of chronic kidney disease (CKD) and its consequences and to develop strategies to mitigate the risk of CKD development and progression, particularly among minority groups and HIV-infected individuals. Her work to date has emphasized the ongoing burden of kidney disease in treated HIV-infected persons and shed light on clinical and genetic risk factors that contribute to this burden. Recently, her work has grown to encompass the identification of early markers of kidney injury, with the hope of translating these biomarkers into routine clinical practice for earlier detection and management of acute kidney injury and CKD. As some of her most rewarding experiences has centered on addressing key gaps in nephrology research through collaborative efforts and mentorship of research trainees, Dr. Estrella also joined as a Core Investigator in the Kidney Health Research Collaborative (khrc.ucsf.edu) this summer.
