Anthony Warrens, Professor of Renal and Transplantation Medicine
There is a worldwide shortage of organs for transplantation. Anthony Warrens’ research has addressed a number of different approaches to tackling this problem. Will it be possible to use organs from animals in man? Can we better understand rejection to make the transplanted organ less susceptible? Which aspects of immunological sensitisation are important in increasing rejection? Why is it that members of some communities are less prepared to consent to organ donation than others? Professor Warrens discusses how his work has approached these questions and how he has become increasingly interested in medical education at the same time.
