Dr Gurprataap Sandhu obtained his medical degree from Gandhi Medical College, India and then worked at the Division of Nephrology at the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Harvard Medical School, Boston MA. He subsequently moved to the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Presbyterian hospital for his Internal Medicine residency. Dr Sandhu’s research interests include social factors effecting access to renal transplantation and establishing preferred modality of dialysis access. In addition, Dr Sandhu’s group at the Harvard Medical School developed the Social Adaptability Index (SAI), used to accurately identify patients at higher risk to suffer from health care disparities. Through several key publications, they have shown that index is valid across different subsets of populations like patients with end stage renal disease, chronic kidney disease, diabetes, in addition to the general population. Dr Sandhu’s also showed that patients who were married or divorced had a higher likelihood of getting wait-listed for transplant and eventually getting a transplant, compared to unmarried patients. In addition, Dr Sandhu showed that education can alleviate, at least partially, some of the disparities experienced by minority ethnic groups. These findings have had significant implications on allocation policies used by various transplant programs across the United States.

Dr. Paul Lu is a Research Health Science Specialist at VA San Diego Healthcare System and an Associate Research Scientist at University of California-San Diego. His primary research focuses on transplantation of neural stem cell as functional neuronal relays for spinal cord injury and neurological diseases. Recently, Dr. Lu and his team develop a new protocol to improve neural stem cell tracking, survival, differentiation, and maturation in the severely injured adult spinal cord by embedding neural stem cells into fibrin matrixes containing growth factor cocktails. This protocol results great survive of neural stem cells in lesion site and promotes their differentiation into both neurons and glia. Most remarkably, the grafted neurons extended their axons in remarkable densities and over extraordinary distances in the host spinal cord for connectivity. In addition, Dr. Lu uses gene therapy as a tool to delivery of neurotrophic factors in combination with cell graft to promote axonal regeneration after spinal cord injury. Dr. Lu is an invited speaker for international symposium and present seminars in several universities and hospitals. Research Interests includes neural stem cell transplantation for spinal cord injury Gene therapy for promotion of axonal regeneration after spinal cord injury.
