Research Interests

My research interest is in transplant immunology, with a particular focus on determinants of organ tolerance. We investigate novel immunosuppressive regimens, and are also pursuing immunosuppression withdrawal in selected liver transplant recipients. By studying the immune profiles of transplant patients who are successfully weaned from immunosuppressants, we hope to predict prospectively which patients may be good candidates for immunosuppression withdrawal.
