Researcher in Transplantation Science
Dr Maria Kaisar obtained her DPhil in Transplantation Science from the Nuffield Department of Surgical Sciences, University of Oxford, under the supervision of Professor Benedikt Kessler and Professor Rutger Ploeg.
Her interests lie in basic and translational research to better understand the biological mechanisms that lead to donor organ injury or repair. Her collaborative work, within NHS Blood and Transplant and the University of Oxford, focuses on the development of novel diagnostics of donor organ quality to better assess deceased donors and donor organs prior to transplantation.
Maria holds the role of the Translational Research Coordinator and is a member of the National Management Team and the Steering Committee of the Consortium of Quality in Organ Donation (QUOD). She is a Board Member of the Basic Science Committee of the European Society of Organ Transplantation (ESOT) and a member of The Transplantation Society (TTS) Educational Committee.
