Michael Eadon, MD, PhD is a translational physician scientist with accomplishments in the realms of pharmacogenomic discovery, construction of a molecular atlas of the kidney in health and disease, and implementation of pharmacogenomics and genomics of chronic kidney disease. He received his MD from Rush University (2006), completed internal medicine residency at Baylor College of Medicine (2009), and completed a combined research fellowship in nephrology, glomerulonephritis and clinical pharmacology at University of Chicago (2013). He joined Indiana University in 2013 and has appointments in nephrology, clinical pharmacology and medical & molecular genetics.
Eadon’s primary research efforts focus on the translation of pharmacogenomics into clinical practice as well as the identification of novel predictors of renal injury from large genomic and transcriptomic datasets. Major focus areas include the evaluation of renal disease expression patterns with spatial transcriptomics and understanding genetic variants that affect this expression (expression quantitative trait loci). He is an active member of NIDDK’s Kidney Precision Medicine Project and the Human BioMolecular Atlas Project, integrating diverse orthogonal datasets to characterize molecular patterns of kidney disease in subjects who have underwent a kidney biopsy.
