Liver-Related Work

Dr. Ganesh's research interests include living donor liver transplants and drug metabolism in patients post-living donor transplant. Dr. Ganesh conducts research on the safety and preliminary efficacy of donor-derived regulatory dendritic cell infusion and immunosuppression withdrawal in living donor transplant recipients, and Remodulin and ischemic reperfusion injury in patients post liver transplant.

Her clinical interests include piloting the cirrhotic patients with low MELD, who are at high risk of death on the liver transplant wait list, in the outpatient disease management program. In addition, Dr. Ganesh is interested in increasing the accessibility that patients on the waitlist have to transplant and living donor liver transplant.
