Biographical statement

Dr. Segev is a clinically active transplant surgeon at Johns Hopkins University, where he oversees the Epidemiology Research Group in Organ Transplantation. Drawing on a background in computer science, electrical engineering, and biostatistics, Dr. Segev uses creative mathematical approaches to answer clinical and policy questions in the field, with particular attention to expansion of the organ donor pool. His work in Kidney Paired Donation led to a congressional bill, a national KPD program, and an expansion of the live kidney donor pool, on the order of thousands of new live donor transplants. Stemming from this, his study of over 80,000 live kidney donors established the current definitive risk estimates for this procedure. Dr. Segev and his research group are currently addressing geographic disparities in organ availability as well as age, race, and gender disparities in access to transplantation. He is also currently conducting a cohort study of live kidney donors, a study of novel risk predictors in older adults undergoing transplantation, a national study of incompatible kidney transplants, and a randomized trial of an intervention to increase live kidney donation.
