Scientific Focus

Current Research and Scholarly Interests

My research interests are in immune monitoring in kidney transplant patients and in the management of sensitized patients. I am interested in translational studies to determine the immunological mechanisms underlying kidney transplant rejection and alloantibody production and to identify novel biomarkers to monitor the immune system in kidney transplant patients. I am also interested in designing novel protocols for desensitization and ABO incompatible kidney transplantation.
