Jordan, director of the Division of Nephrology and medical director of the Cedars-Sinai Kidney Transplant Program, accepted the Jean Hamburger Award at the World Congress of Nephrology in April.

Jordan also was honored this month by the American Society of Transplantation, receiving the Senior Achievement Award in Clinical Transplantation.
