Dr. Dixon Kaufman and colleagues leading UW participation in kidney transplant trial

Dixon Kaufman, MD, PhD

Dixon Kaufman, MD, PhD, and colleagues in the Division of Transplantation were featured in the Wisconsin State Journal. The article, “Sisters pioneer new kidney transplant at UW that includes immune system,” features a pioneering new kidney transplant method that substitutes the donor’s immune system for anti-rejection drugs. UW is participating in a national clinical trial of this method.

We’re so proud of the team that makes this care possible, including Director of Transplant Clinical Trials Kristi Schneider, the featured patient’s surgeon Robert Redfield, MD, and SMPH colleagues Kristin Bradley, MD, and Peiman Hematti, MD.
