Dr. Jane Salmon is the Associate Dean for Faculty Affairs and Professor of Medicine at Weill Cornell Medicine. She is the Collette Kean Research Chair and Director of the Lupus and Antiphospholipid Center of Excellence at Hospital for Special Surgery. Jane received her M.D. from Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, and completed residency training at The New York Hospital and subspecialty training in rheumatology at Hospital for Special Surgery.
Jane’s basic, translational and clinical studies have led to a paradigm shift in the understanding of mechanisms of pregnancy loss, cardiovascular disease and end-organ damage in patients with lupus. Ground-breaking laboratory discoveries about causes of pregnancy loss and preeclampsia, and subsequent observational studies in women with lupus have allowed her to identify new targets to reduce damage and improve outcomes in patients with autoimmune illness.
In recognition of her contributions, she was awarded the Carol Nachman international prize in rheumatology, the Virginia Kneeland Frantz ‘22 Distinguished Women in Medicine Award from the Columbia P&S Alumni Association, the Evelyn V. Hess Award from the Lupus Foundation of America, and election to the American Association of Physicians and to the National Academy of Medicine.
