Celebrating Dr. Alan Partin

We are nearing a milestone both for The Brady Urological Institute, and for a humble titan among us – Dr. Alan Partin.  On June 30, 2021, Alan stepped down from his three leadership roles at Johns Hopkins Medicine.  Ever committed to patients, Alan is continuing his clinical practice and research for several years, without the substantial time commitment and responsibilities of academic leadership.

Through his teaching and mentorship, his clinical acumen, his scientific curiosity, his kindness and dedication, and his relentless energies, Alan has helped thousands: patients, students, residents, physicians, and scientists.  Simultaneously, he has made an indelible mark on the fields of urology and prostate cancer, advancing both in ways that directly benefit patients.   

With wisdom and competence, Alan has steered one of the world’s top urologic departments through modernization and expansion while strengthening its commitment to discovery and the delivery of top-notch clinical care.  He has nonetheless maintained a presence on the ground – demonstrating daily his true passion for teaching, heartfelt devotion to patients’ health and well-being, and deep determination to advance science.

In considering how best to honor such extraordinary contributions, we enlisted Alan himself.   He told us that the most meaningful recognition would be a mechanism to support young scientists’ studies of prostate cancer biomarkers, the focus of his own research career.  

Following his lead, we have organized a campaign to create the Alan W. Partin, MD, PhD Research Fellowship.  When fully funded with at least $1.5 million, this endowed fellowship will support one urologic trainee per year in perpetuity.  As he immerses himself in research in years ahead, Alan will find great fulfillment in having a Fellow study alongside him whose position bears his name.  

Alan has worked hard to develop The Brady into a true community devoted to knowledge and care.  

Our hope is to show him, through an outpouring of support for this named Fellowship, how much we all value this community, his efforts to build it, and him.  

Thank you!
