Nate Hellman MD PhD, the founder of the Renal Fellow Network, died tragically just over two months ago. He was a wonderful person, who possessed a strong sense of humanity, humor and compassion. Nate touched the lives of many people and is dearly missed by all who knew him.
A graduate of the Medical Scientist Training Program at Washington University, Nate loved the mysteries of basic science and clinical medicine and who took immense pleasure in teaching and sharing knowledge. Presently, his family is working with Washington University to establish the Nathan Hellman, M.D., Ph.D. Memorial Award, which will be given annually to recognize an outstanding medical student in the School of Medicine, a fitting legacy for an incredibly accomplished physician and scientist such as Nate.
