In Memoriam Paul Angulo

Autor: Méndez Sánchez Nahum


I was recently informed by the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases about the loss of Paul Angulo. It was very surprising for me that such a young, enthusiastic and productive hepatologist has passed away and I want to take the opportunity to write about my friend and colleague Paul Angulo. He was born in Guasabe, Sinaloa, Mexico. He did his college at “Eng. Pascual Ortiz-Rubio” high school and his medical studies in the school of medicine “Dr. Ignacio Chavez” at the San Nicolas Hidalgo University in Morelia, Michoacan, Mexico. He completed his internal medicine program at the National Institute of Medical Sciences and Nutrition (INCMNSZ, for its acronym in Spanish); at the end of the program he was appointed as Resident-in-chief for one year for his excellent achievements. At the same institution Paul completed his training in gastroenterology with great success. While at the institution, he started working in the Hepatology field before his training in internal medicine under Prof. Guadalupe Garcia-Tsao’s supervision. In fact he completed a one-year of clinical research about two interesting complications of liver cirrhosis such as ascitis and bacterial peritonitis. Paul finished his training in Hepatology at the Mayo Clinic with Prof. Keith Lindor. At this place he started working the two lines of research, chronic cholestasis diseases and Non alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). Finally, in the last years Paul was working at the Division of Digestive Diseases & Nutrition, University of Kentucky Medical Center.
