Fangming Lin, MD, PhD

Dr. Fangming Lin joined CUMC in June 2011 as the Division Director of Pediatric Nephrology after 10 years of serving University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas. She received her MD degree from Fujian Medical University in China and her PhD degree in Pharmacology at New York Medical College. Dr. Lin underwent pediatric residency training at New York University Medical Center and pediatric nephrology fellowship training at Seattle Children’s Hospital of the University of Washington.

As a physician scientist, Dr. Lin has a strong interest in both patient care and science and discovery. She is passionate and experienced in treating children with congenital kidney conditions as well as acquired kidney diseases.
