Dr. Lona Mody is elected as a new member of the ASCI

The American Society for Clinical Investigation (ASCI) will welcome 64 new members this year, including our very own Dr. Lona Mody, Amanda Sanford Hickey Collegiate Professor of Internal Medicine, Professor of Internal Medicine, Research Professor, Institute of Gerontology, and Professor of Epidemiology, School of Public Health. This new class of members is a remarkable and accomplished group of physician-scientists representing a diverse range of disciplines, specialties, and institutions.

The ASCI is an honor society of physician-scientists, those who translate findings in the laboratory to the advancement of clinical practice. Founded in 1908, the Society is home to nearly 3,000 members who are in the upper ranks of academic medicine and industry. Dr. Mody, as well as three other faculty members from UM, Dr. Reshma Jagsi, Dr. Justin Dimick and Dr. Meilan Han were elected this year.


The ASCI membership is a well-deserved recognition of Dr. Mody’s outstanding research accomplishments.
