Clinical and Research Interests

Clinically, I am interested in the role of surgery in the management of end-stage heart and lung disease. I participate in health services research in which we examine the efficiency of and disparities in the allocation of thoracic allografts to those awaiting heart and lung transplantation. My basic science work has centered on the energetics associated with primary graft dysfunction following heart and lung transplantation, along with novel immunosuppression strategies to prevent allograft rejection.
