BiographyDr. Tolkoff Rubin is nationally recognized for her care of renal failure  and transplant patients.

New procedure, new life

Eight years ago, Jennifer Searl used a handicapped permit to get around campus at the University of New Hampshire. Last October, Searl, 26, ran a half-marathon and felt so good afterward she immediately signed up for another. In between these two extremes lies not only a journey of a thousand steps, but one taken along a path Searl herself blazed - with help from the Massachusetts General Hospital Transplant Center.

Tolkoff-Rubin honored with endowed chair in renal transplantation

On July 17, the MGH celebrated the establishment of the MGH Endowed Chair in Renal Transplantation and its first incumbent Nina Tolkoff-Rubin, MD, medical director of the MGH Renal Transplantation Program.
