Professor of Transplantation (Honorary Consultant)
Professor Kourosh Saeb-Parsy joined the Department of Surgery in 2007 as a Clinical Lecturer and was appointed as University Lecturer and Honorary Consultant Transplant Surgeon in 2012. He was appointed as Reader in Transplantation in 2018. He has also been a Fellow and Director of Studies in Clinical Medicine at Fitzwilliam College since 2003.
His laboratory research interests are focused on the cellular and humoral immune response to transplantation, the impact of ischaemia reperfusion injury on acute and chronic graft function, and the immunogenicity of stem cells and their derivatives. His clinical research is directed towards identification of donor and recipient factors that can affect graft and patient outcomes after kidney, pancreas and liver transplantation.
His collaborative, multidisciplinary and translational research program is focused on:
- Function and immunogenicity of transplanted regenerative cellular therapies
- Ischaemia-reperfusion injury in transplantation
- Translational research using human tissue
- Clinical outcomes after transplantation
