Professor Kathryn Wood and Dr Fadi Issa were awarded  “The Transplantation Society Mentee/ Mentor Award”    which recognizes the efforts of basic scientists, who have advanced our understanding of transplant science/immunobiology and/or treatment of transplant recipients, as well as the importance of young investigators who will be the future leaders in transplantation.

Dr Fadi Issa was also awarded the “President's Choice Award” for his presentation on “Homing of therapeutic human reg T cells to the allograft site enhances transplant survival” which he gave at the Congress on Monday 16th July 2012.

In addition, Professor Wood was honoured by the society when she was awarded the "TTS-Roche Award for Outstanding Achievement in Transplantation Science (Basic)" which recognises Professor Wood's important contributions to the field of Transplantation.

Transplant kidney survival rate improves with new method of transportation

Publication Research

New research by the Consortium for Organ Preservation in Europe (COPE) has found that a new method to transport donor kidneys, which uses a combination of cold perfusion with oxygen, can significantly improve transplant results, with less graft failure, better function and lower rejection of the kidney when compared to cold perfusion alone. For patients who need a kidney transplant this is a big step forward. The study, carried out in Belgium, The Netherlands and the UK, was published today in The Lancet.
