Title of the best project in 2018: Optimisation Of An Ex-Vivo Limb Perfusion Protocol For Composite Tissue Transplantation

Winner: dr Kavit R Amin, Clinical Fellow in Plastic Surgery (MBBS, BSc (Hons)) and team led by James E Fildes from University of Manchester (UK)

The FESSH research Committee is happy that 15 strong applications from 9 countries competed for the first (2018-19) FESSH Research Grant Award. The winning project on “Optimisation Of An Ex-Vivo Limb Perfusion Protocol For Composite Tissue Transplantation” was from Dr Kavit R Amin from University of Manchester in UK.  The RC motivation for choosing Dr Amin was:

“Dr Amin’s project on optimisation of an ex-vivo limb perfusion protocol for composite tissue transplantation clearly exemplifies what we look for in the winner of the FESSH Research Grant. It is a clear cut translational research project, where an elegant animal model and pre clinical approach is used to solve an obvious clinical problem. The topic of limb allo-transplantation and improvement of graft preservation is very interesting and of obvious clinical relevance. Furthermore, Dr Amin’s strong CV, where he has proven to be a driven young clinician, with a sincere interest in science as Research fellow at the University of Manchester, makes him a good candidate for this grant.”

The results from Dr Amins research will be presented at FESSH 2020.
