Marc L. Melcher
Associate Professor of Surgery (Abdominal Transplantation) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My goal is to extend the benefits of organ transplantation to greater numbers of patients while maintaining excellent outcomes. We developed the "paired-organ exchange" program at Stanford to increase the chances that patients with willing but incompatible living donors can still receive a living donor kidney. In addition, I am applying artificial intelligence algorithms to facilitate complex decision making in liver transplant.
