Research Lab Results for transplants
Christian Merlo LabPrincipal Investigator:
Christian Merlo, M.D., M.P.H.
Work in the Christian Merlo Lab includes studies on pulmonary arteriovenous malformations, outc...omes in lung transplantation and treatment of cystic fibrosis (CF), and HIV-related pulmonary disease. We have studied methods of diagnosing and managing pulmonary arteriovenous malformations as well as the outcomes of adult CF patients who are infected with multiple antibiotic-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Our recent research has also explored recipient and donor variables in the success or failure of lung transplants, and ways in which national healthcare delivery systems impact lung transplant outcomes for CF patients. view moreResearch Areas: cystic fibrosis, pulmonary arteriovenous malformations, HIV, lung disease, lung transplant
Edward Kraus LabPrincipal Investigator:
Edward Kraus, M.D.
Dr. Kraus’ team investigates the factors that impact the long-term success or failure of kidney... transplants as well as barriers to nephrology care and transplants in minority populations. We research many topics dealing with kidney transplant rejection, including diagnostic criteria, infection risk and incompatibility factors. Our lab also has a longstanding interest in pancreas transplants and has conducted research to establish guidelines for diagnosing antibody-mediated rejection of pancreas allografts-updated Banff grading schema. view moreResearch Areas: kidney transplants, nephrology, health disparities, pancreas transplants
Elham Afghani LabPrincipal Investigator:
