About Me

Before joining WFIRM, I played a key role in the nation’s first approved hand transplant program at the University of Louisville before joining the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, where my efforts were fundamental to the institutional approval, federal funding, and establishment of the nation’s second upper extremity transplant program with 8 upper extremity transplants. I have been a primary investigator across diverse programs ranging from upper extremity transplantation and organ preservation to eye transplantation and novel graft-targeted drug delivery in vascularized composite allotransplantation.
