In a paper presented at the American Transplant Congress, Seattle, WA (May 20, 2013), McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine affiliated faculty member Paulo Fontes, MD, assistant professor of surgery at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, described the ground breaking results from a study conducted by a multidisciplinary team who designed and assessed the effectiveness of a system to oxygenate harvested livers with a perfusion system so that the condition of the liver can be maintained for an extended period before implantation.
The team of investigators included participants from the Starzl Transplantation Institute, Department of Surgery, and the McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine-University of Pittsburgh—including McGowan affiliated faculty member Anthony Demetris, MD, professor of pathology and director, Division of Transplantation Pathology at the Starzl Transplantation Institute—and the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.
