David Serur MD

NYP-Well Cornell and Regosin Institute

Dr. Serur came to Cornell in 1991 with an interest in clinical transplantation and is now Medical Director of the kidney transplant program. Research interests have included pharmaceutical industry supported studies of new transplant medications as well as investigator-initiated studies. Dr. Serur was one of the earliest proponents of offering kidney transplantation to HIV patients on dialysis, something that many thought was too risky but is now routinely done. He serves on the editorial board of the journal Transplantation and is on the medical boards of the NY Organ Donor Network and the Manhattan chapter of TRIO, the transplant recipient organization. Being involved in kidney paired exchange since its inception at Cornell, Dr. Serur has volunteered as Medical Director of the National Kidney Registry, the largest paired exchange program in the world.
