Pascale Lane is a Professor of Pediatrics in the section of Pediatric Nephrology at the Oklahoma University Health Sciences Center since September 2011. She received her MD from the University of Missouri- Kansas City and trained in Pediatrics at Rush Medical College in Chicago. Her fellowship in Nephrology was at University of Minnesota. In 2008 the American Society of Nephrology selected her as founding editor of ASN Kidney News, its national magazine.
Dr. Lane is a member of many professional organizations in Nephrology and associated scientific disciplines. She performs and publishes basic, clinical, and educational research, teaches in the lecture hall and clinic, and cares for patients in her specialty. Other interests include faculty development, particularly writing skills, research administration, and the evolving role of social media in medicine and science.
Her interest in faculty development led her to write The Promotion Game: Your Guide to Success in the Academic Medical Center. Many junior faculty members with clinical training have not been adequately prepared to succeed in the academic world. This book proves a short, easy-to-read guide to help them stay on track for promotion and tenure.
In addition to her personal site, she blogs as WhizBANG! at the Scientopia Group.
