Scott David Cohen Faculty Member

Positions

My principal areas of research have focused on psychosocial issues in patients with chronic kidney diseases and the diagnosis and management of glomerular diseases. Our group published the first textbook dedicated to psychosocial issues in CKD in the Fall of 2020. Over the past decade, my clinical focus has been on the treatment of patients with glomerular diseases. I started the first dedicated glomerular diseases clinic in Washington DC in 2012. I have developed an interest in urinary biomarkers to detect early podocyte injury and recently submitted a proposal to investigate correlations between urinary exosome levels and APOL1 mutant alleles in African American patients with and without diabetes. I am a dedicated clinician educator having served as the GW Nephrology Fellowship Program Director for the past five years. I received the GW Distinguished Teacher of the Year Award in 2018. I serve as the co-director of the Intersession Course for 3rd and 4th year medical students at GW School of Medicine and the clinical lead for the Renal course for 1st year medical students. I was previously the course director for the Introduction to Clinical Medicine Course at the medical school.
