In: Memoriam: Solomon Esptein, M.D.


Recommended Posts

It is with great sadness that the family of Solomon Epstein, M.D. informs you of his passing on February 2, 2020. Dr. Epstein was a Professor of Medicine and Geriatrics at Mt. Sinai School of Medicine in New York, and adjunct professor at the University of Pennsylvania. In addition to his academic career, he had a distinguished career as an endocrinologist and at one time named one of Philadelphia’s top 10 endocrinologists. Dr. Epstein’s profound research included the discovery of calcineurin inhibitor immunosuppressants causing profound bone loss after an organ transplantation. Dr. Epstein was an active member of ASBMR, where he was inducted in the 2018 class of ASBMR fellows. He had a distinguished publications career serving as co-editor of the Oxford American Handbook of Endocrinology and Diabetes and was the author of over 250 peer-reviewed publications.

The family asks contributions in Dr. Epstein’s memory be made to a charity of the donor’s choice.

I will miss Sol. He was always interested in what others were doing, always happy to engage in discussion and always looking at a subject from a different angle in order to get you to realize that you hadn't fully considered the subject. Our discussions at ASBMR meetings were always lively and something to look forward to during each meeting. I was glad to see that we were inaugural fellows together.
