About Leslie Gewin, MD

Leslie Gewin, MD, is a physician-scientist in the Division of Nephrology at Washington University in St. Louis and a Staff Physician at the St. Louis VA. Her research interest focuses on understanding the mechanisms underlying chronic kidney disease progression. She runs a basic science lab funded by both the NIH and the VA that studies how renal tubular epithelia respond to injury and how these responses promote repair or fibrosis. Dr. Gewin is particularly interested in the role of growth factors and altered metabolism in modulating these epithelial responses. She also has a chronic kidney disease clinic and attends on the nephrology consult service at the St. Louis VA. Dr. Gewin is passionate about teaching and supporting the next generation of physician-scientists. She previously served as Co-director of the Kidney Student Research Training Program, which places medical students in a lab for a mentored research experience during the summer between first and second years. To advocate for the careers of women investigators, Dr. Gewin has been involved as a Councilor on Women in Nephrology, an international group that provides mentorship and professional development to both men and women in nephrology. Dr. Gewin is also a fellow and current Councilor of Southern Society for Clinical Investigation (SSCI) and served as a judge for the SSCI’s Nephrology Young Investigators’ Forum 2019-2021
