Mitesh Badiwala, BSc, MD, PhD, FRCSC


My research program focuses on the development of an Ex Vivo Heart Perfustion (EVHP) platform for donor heart reanimation and perfusion. We are actively investigating methods to enable prolonged perfusion and Ex Vivo assessment of donor heart function. Our current focus is on examining the effect of concomittant dialysis on EVHP. In addition, we are characterizing the metabolic changes that occur during EVHP to identify targets for metabolic substrate modulation that may facilitate prolonged perfusion.
