Edit Profile

Research Narrative:

As a post-doctoral fellow at the Surgical Research Laboratory at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical in the early nineties, Dr. Tullius started exploring the consequences of IRI on transplant outcome and continued this work after moving back to Berlin, Germany. His laboratory has contributed to an improved understanding of the impact of IRI and other alloantigen-independent factors determinating graft outcome. Their work has characterized mechanisms correlating innate and adaptive immune responses as they relate to the modification of the recipient’s immune response consequential to organ quality. In addition to his laboratory work he is an active transplant surgeon.
