Sarah Huen, M.D., Ph.D.
- Internal Medicine - Nephrology
Dr. Sarah Huen is originally from Chicago, IL. She received her initial medical training at Northwestern University. She completed her Internal Medicine residency training at New York University Medical Center. Intrigued by the pathophysiology of acute kidney injury and frustrated by the lack of any viable therapeutic options, she pursued a research nephrology fellowship and a Ph.D. degree in Investigative Medicine at Yale University in the laboratory of Dr. Lloyd Cantley studying the role of macrophages in ischemic kidney injury. She was a post doctoral fellow in the laboratory of Dr. Ruslan Medzhitov at Yale where she studied the mechanisms of tissue tolerance and changes in metabolism in systemic inflammation. Dr. Huen joined the faculty at UT Southwestern in 2017 as an Assistant Professor. Her research interests include investigating renal metabolism in sepsis and other states of inflammation. Outside of medicine and science, she enjoys cooking, photography and hiking.
