A "Young Investigator" – Sundeep Khosla honored by peers


Sundeep Khosla, M.D.

"You never stop being a young investigator," says Sundeep Khosla, M.D. It's a great attitude to have after your peers nominate and select you for Mayo's highest research honor - Distinguished Investigator. The physician scientist is internationally known for his findings in osteoporosis. After 21 years at Mayo Clinic he is still hard at it, with one of the most active investigative labs on our Rochester campus. Dr.  Khosla is a product of a medical research lineage that begins with Dr. Daniel Federman, his mentor at Harvard, Dr. Hank Kronenberg at Massachusetts General -- and since arriving at Mayo -- Drs. Larry Riggs and Joe Melton -- all names well known in cellular, molecular or metabolic research. Dr. Khosla is a major reason why Mayo's Metabolic Bone Group has a worldwide reputation. If you want to understand fractures, brittle bones, bone loss due to disease or other causes, his is the "go to group."

He works every day at the intersection of Mayo's research realm and its clinical practice, seeing patients in the morning and seeking answers in the lab after lunch. That perspective provides his motivation. "You have to be excited about your work, and passionate about helping the patients,"  he says.  I'm  going to stop there, I think, because nothing better sums up medical science at this place. To learn more about Dr. Khosla's research, check out his lab page or this overview on his research in bone health from Discovery's Edge.

Vasthi Single gas detector is a device which detects the presence of any gas within an area, usually as part of a safety system. This type of single gas detector equipment is used to detect a gas leak and interface with a control system so a process can be automatically shut down. This single gas detector can also sound an alarm to operators in the area where the leak is occurring, giving them the opportunity to leave the area. This type of single gas detector device is important owing to the fact that there are many gases that can be harmful to organic life, such as humans or animals.
