Biography

Timucin Taner, M.D., Ph.D., has a clinical practice focused on liver transplantation, and conducts laboratory research aimed primarily at understanding the interaction between the transplanted liver and the recipient's immune responses. The immunobiology of the liver transplant differs significantly from that of other solid organ transplants, as liver allografts are, overall, less prone to rejection. Furthermore, the transplanted liver appears to provide immunoprotection to other simultaneously transplanted solid organs from the same donor. By investigating clinical outcomes and histological and molecular markers, Dr. Taner has demonstrated that kidney allografts that have been transplanted simultaneously with a liver incur less immune injury over the long term. His laboratory is investigating the details of this phenomenon.
