My research interest is on transplant immunobiology, especially on  Ischemia Reperfusion Injury, and Immunosenescence. Clinically, my research interest is on Transplant Outcome Research, more especifically on the use of  Extended Criteria Donors .

Currently, I am looking for a qualified post-doc to work on a project on liver machine preservation using rodent models. Experience with immunological assays and microsurgery is expected.
