Her research in immunology and clinical applications as well as the inspiration she provides to women entering the field of medicine bring Dr. Terri Finkel international recognition. She received both her MD and PhD degrees from Stanford University. After completing her pediatric internship and residency at Harvard University and the University of Colorado, she did specialty training in pediatric rheumatology at the National Jewish Center for Immunology & Respiratory Medicine. There she greatly enhanced our knowledge of auto-immunity, AIDS, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and cancer; was recognized for her work with T-cell research; directed two research labs; and oversaw the care of 400 ill children. Dr. Finkel was also on the board of directors of One Day, the Family AIDS Project; was an associate editor of the Journal of Immunology; and was an ad hoc reviewer for seven prestigious journals. She is now the Hollander Chair in Pediatric Rheumatology at the University of Pennsylvania Children’s Hospital.
