UC Researchers Join Board of World-Renowned Tumor Registry

Published June 2005

Two UC experts on post-transplant malignancies, Prabir Roy-Chaudhury, MD, and Guy Neff, MD, have been appointed to the Board of Directors of the Israel Penn International Transplant Tumor Registry.

The registry, which provides data on patients who have developed malignancies after organ transplants, is the largest and most comprehensive resource of its kind in the world.

Drs. Roy-Chaudhury and Neff, assistant professors in the Department of Internal Medicine, have collaborated in clinical research to increase the effectiveness of transplantation, especially in high-risk patients, and lessen post-operative complications.

Both are reviewers for the American Journal of Transplantation and have been contributing reviewers and authors for the medical journal Transplantation.

The Israel Penn International Transplant Tumor Registry was founded by Israel Penn, MD, in 1969. Originally known as the Denver Transplant Tumor Registry, it was later renamed the Cincinnati Transplant Tumor Registry following Dr. Penn's move to UC Medical Center. In 1999 it was posthumously named the Israel Penn International Transplant Tumor Registry.
