Clinical Transplantation Outcomes

Our clinical research programme is focused on outcomes after kidney, pancreas and liver transplantation. Kourosh Saeb-Parsy is the chief investigator in a randomised clinical trial (RCT) on the timing of stent removal after kidney transplantation and aa co-investigator in two RCTs studying the potential of heme arginate an ex vivo normothermic perfusion to improve outcomes after kidney transplantation. Our group is also focused on prospective cohort studies and retrospective data analysis to identify factors that predict outcomes after transplantation, with an emphasis on early graft loss.
