Laurence H. Beck, Jr., MD, PhD, completed his Internal Medicine residency and Nephrology fellowship at Boston Medical Center. He joined the Renal Section in 2006, and continues to conduct basic science research in the laboratory of Dr. David Salant on the pathogenesis of membranous nephropathy. His clinical roles include a weekly clinic and attending time on the consult and dialysis/transplant services. He also has expertise in immune-mediated glomerular disease.
