January 11-14 was the 18th annual American Society of Transplant Surgeons (ASTS) Winter Symposium in Miami, FL. Over 30 ERGOT members had the opportunity to present our work in the poster exhibition, soapbox and oral abstract presentations, and panel discussions.
On Thursday, January 11, Dr. Jackie Garonzik-Wang highlighted newsworthy events in transplantation during 2017 in her talk Hot Topics in Kidney Transplantation.
For presenting your thesis proposal, today on December 1st at Johns Hopkins University School of Public Health.
Our Dr. Tanjala Purnell was honored by her alma matter, Tougaloo College, with their distinguished 40 Under 40 alumni award. Tougaloo College awards this to young alumni for outstanding achievement and leadership in all phases of society.
Dr. Purnell works tirelessly to understand health equity and race disparity in healthcare and transplantation. We are incredibly proud to work with her as a part of the ERGOT team.
Assistant Professor of Surgery, Division of Transplantation, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine
Dr. Henderson’s background in law, ethics, health policy and management support her research into the health outcomes of live kidney donors and transplant patients. She is a national organ transplant law and policy expert and actively develops policy and guidance related to the donation and transplantation of organs from living donors to recipients in the United States. Dr. Henderson was recently elected to the 2017-2018 Board of Directors for the United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS).
1. What is your connection to donation?
I’m connected to donation and transplant personally and professionally. I’m a research scientist at Johns Hopkins specializing in live donor follow up and mHealth innovations related to live organ donation. Additionally, I’m a living donor myself. I donated my kidney to my cousin, Marc, on July 10, 2009.
Congratulations to ERGOT’s Dr. Allan Massie for joining the American Journal of Transplantation’s Editorial Board as a statistical editor! We are thrilled that you continue to contribute meaningfully to research in the transplant community.
Our Dr. Sommer Gentry will compete on FOX’s Superhuman TONIGHT at 9pm EST!
Gentry, a graduate of Stanford University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), will display her math puzzle-solving skills next to similarly impressive super-humans and compete for a prize of $100,000. She will solve a puzzle that she hopes will sell mathematics to an audience and to explain why she finds math so compelling.
