Description of Research Expertise

Dr. Reese's primary research focus is the development of effective strategies to increase access to kidney and liver transplantation. His research is motivated by the widening gap between the number of patients wait-listed for transplants and the limited number of organs available. He uses tools from epidemiology, biostatistics, health services research and medical ethics to describe disparities in transplantation and methods to overcome them. Through policy development work with the United Network for Organ Sharing, he also helps to translate clinical research into effective national policy.

Dr. Reese has written specifically about barriers to live donor transplantation, the use of kidneys from deceased donors at increased risk of HIV and other blood-borne viral infection, and the implications of organ allocation for the elderly. His work was among the first to examine the practice and ethical implications of accepting live kidney donors with risk factors for kidney disease.

In the last five years, Dr. Reeseā€™s research efforts have been supported by: 1) NIH grants to study variation in live donor kidney transplantation across transplant centers, and the impact of functional status on kidney transplant outcomes, 2) a T. Franklin Williams Award in geriatric research (co-sponsored by the Association of Specialty Professors and the American Society of Nephrology) to examine the effects of emerging organ allocation proposals on older kidney transplant candidates, and 3) funding from the American Society of Transplantation to study outcomes among older live kidney donors.
