Chris studied medicine in Cambridge and graduated in 1983. After training in transplant surgery and vascular surgery he took up a consultant post at the Oxford Transplant Centre before returning to Addenbrooke’s as a university lecturer and consultant in 1998.

He leads the pancreas transplant programme locally, and led the development of pancreas transplantation nationally, securing funding for a national programme in 2004.  He was the first chair of the Pancreas Advisory Group at NHS Blood and Transplant, introducing a national allocation scheme and developing governance for the national programme. He now chairs the equivalent committee overseeing kidney transplantation in the UK, and is set to introduce a new kidney offering scheme at the end of this year.

Chris’ main research interests are around increasing outcomes and access to organs from deceased organ donors.  Recently this has focussed on using ex situ perfusion of the liver to assess viability prior to transplantation.
