About Stanford Transplant

Carlos Esquivel, MD

Message from the Chief

The Division of Abdominal Transplantation’s mission is to provide the highest quality patient care for our patients, to foster translational research, and to train the best transplant surgeons for the future.  We are highly committed to improving the care of our transplant patients through innovative clinical and basic science research both in the hospital and the lab.

Clinically, we offer transplantation services at Stanford Hospital & Clinics (SHC) and Lucile Packard Children's' Hospital at Stanford (LPCH).  Leading P.I.’s at Stanford University School of Medicine spearhead our research efforts by recruiting top post-doc fellows as well as attracting new doctoral candidates to the program.

Transplantation is also an important branch of the Immunity, Transplantation and Infection Institute at Stanford University (ITI).  ITI fosters multidisciplinary research projects to investigate in much greater detail the function of the immune system in health and disease including transplantation.  To carry out this mission, the Human Immune Monitoring Center was created.
