2015 Award Recipient
Stephen C. Textor, M.D.
Consultant, Division of Nephrology and Hypertension, Department of Internal Medicine
Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn
Stephen C. Textor, M.D., is a consultant in the Division of Nephrology
and Hypertension, Department of Internal Medicine, at Mayo Clinic in Rochester,
Minn. Dr. Textor was born in Colorado, and grew up in Minnesota. He attended
Stanford University as an undergraduate and the University of California
as a Regents’ Scholar for his medical degree. He trained in internal
medicine and was Chief Medical Resident at the Boston City Hospital, before
pursuing nephrology and hypertension under the direction of Norman Levinsky
and Aram Chobanian at Boston University.
His career path includes a Fogarty international research grant in Lausanne,
Switzerland during the development of first angiotensin converting enzyme
inhibitor, captopril, followed by an appointment to the research division
of the Cleveland Clinic with a focus on renovascular hypertension and
ischemic nephropathy. Interests in the relationship between hypertension,
cancer and transplantation expanded during a five-year tenure at the City
of Hope National Medical Center in Los Angeles, before taking a position
in the Hypertension Division at Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota, where
he is now Professor of Medicine, Division of Nephrology and Hypertension
and an active participant in the Kidney/Pancreas Transplant Program of
the von Liebig Transplant Center at Mayo Clinic.
His professional interests focus upon the relationships between blood pressure
and the kidney, including renovascular hypertension. In recent years,
Dr. Textor emphasized blood pressure assessment and its role in selecting
living kidney donors. Working with colleagues in renal physiology and
experimental imaging, he has explored the application of functional magnetic
resonance imaging to evaluate tissue oxygenation in the kidney. He is
the co-principal investigator of a recently opened “first-in-human”
clinical trial funded by the NIH studying the use of mesenchymal stem
cells to renew kidney function lost through vascular occlusion.
