Miami Transplant Institute Our Research

Last Visited »


Research in the Miami Transplant Institute includes basic laboratory and clinical research within our three main divisions: Kidney and Pancreas, Liver and Gastrointestinal and Heart and Lungs transplant.

The overall mission of our research is to study novel immunosuppressive treatments in order for our transplanted patients to attain a better quality of live after transplantation: reducing the side effects of medications, as well as reducing the incidence of transplant rejection after cadaveric or living-related donor transplants.

Basic research is organized at the Heart and Lungs transplant program under the direction of Dr. Si Pham as well as at the Liver and GI transplant program under the direction of Dr. Rodrigo Vianna.

Our research is funded under different sources; institutional, government/agency and Industry.
