11 April 2011
Venue: Perrin Lecture Theatre, Blizzard Building, Whitechapel
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 will discuss how his work has approached these questions and how he has become increasingly interested in medical education at the same time. Anthony Warrens undertook his undergraduate training at Glasgow and Oxford, his PhD at the Royal Postgraduate Medical School, London, and a postdoctoral fellowship at Harvard, Boston, USA. In 1996 he was appointed Senior Lecturer and Consultant in Renal Medicine and Immunology, subsequently being awarded a personal chair at Imperial College as Professor of Renal and
Transplantation Medicine. He is on the executive of the British Transplantation Society and serves on various national and international bodies in the field of transplantation. He was the founding head of the Imperial College Graduate-Entry MB BS Programme before coming to Barts and the London, Queen Mary University of London, as Dean for Education.
