    whitlam 2020

    The Bernie Sweet Clinical Research Fellowship 2020 was recently awarded to Dr John Whitlam for his project: “Diagnostic validity of absolute quantification of graft-derived cell-free DNA and graft fraction for monitoring response to treatment of acute kidney transplant antibody medicated rejection”.

     

    The overall aim of this research is to improve the health and long-term survival of kidney transplant recipients.

     

    The research team is working on developing a cost-effective, less-invasive, sensitive and quantitative test for detecting graft damage earlier than current approaches.
