Increasing Living Kidney Donation and Managing Transplant Complications

Living kidney donation is the best treatment for end-stage kidney disease. Dr. Mandelbrot’s research focuses on improving the evaluation of living kidney donors to maximize donor safety and on increasing living donation through novel programs such as kidney paired donation.  

He also studies a number of aspects related to optimizing transplant immunosuppression, including the diagnosis and management of antibody-mediated rejection and the management of infectious complications of immunosuppression.
