Scientific Focus

Current Research and Scholarly Interests

My research interest is centered on the improvement of clinical immunosuppression. This involves the evaluation of new immunosuppressive drugs that are potentially more efficacious and/or less toxic or better monitoring of the effect of these drugs. We are participating in the drug development process from phase1 to phase 3 studies. I participate to trial design and data analysis of some of these trials. The ultimate goal is to achieve tolerance, a state that would obviate the need for any drugs. I am a clinical investigator in a multidisciplinary trial aimed at inducing tolerance after kidney transplantation. My other interests include the development and study of efficacy of strategies to desensitized organ transplant recipients and expending our capabilities to tailor the immunosuppression needs of specific patients through new immune-monitoring tests. Ultimately these research projects are aimed at improving the outcomes of organ transplant recipients.
