I am interested clinically in all abdominal organ transplants (kidney, liver, pancreas and intestine). I am specifically interested in intestine transplantation and improving intestine graft preservation and long-term graft function and patient survival. In addition, I am interested in monitoring of patients to improve our ability to determine the etiology of graft dysfunction when there are complex interacting issues such as infection and rejection as well as examining better immunosuppressive regimens to maintain excellent graft function. We have numerous research studies and trial to improve our knowledge in these areas and thereby contribute to improved patient outcomes!
