Heart surgeon, Zain Khalpey, MD, PhD, MRCS (Eng) has been appointed Surgical Director, Heart Transplant and Mechanical Circulatory Support Program at UAMC. In his research role at the UA, he is the director of the Ex Vivo Lung Program, clinical and translational research, and the Cardiopulmonary Stem Cell Bank. Dr. Khalpey also holds a position on the UA Institutional Review Board (IRB). Dr. Khalpey’s research on translational tissue regeneration evolved from past basic science studies in metabolomics and cell survival. His laboratory at the UA focuses on basic and translational research on organogenesis (the formation and development of organs), organ preservation and tissue regeneration. “The combined training, aptitude and skills of Dr. Khalpey represent the future of cardiac surgery,” said Robert Poston, MD, chief, Division of Cardiothoracic Surgery. “He has tremendous promise as a surgeon who successfully will bridge the gap between the theories of basic science research and practical innovation in clinical medicine and surgery. I am extremely excited to add him as a critical partner to our growing CT team.
