About Dr. Larsen

Dr. Larsen is a Professor of Surgery in the Division of Transplantation at Emory University School of Medicine. Dr. Larsen began serving as executive director of the Emory Transplant Center in 2008 and chair of the Department of Surgery at Emory in 2009. He left both positions in January 2013 to serve as dean of the Emory University School of Medicine. In November 2016, Dr. Larsen returned to full-time pursuit of his clinical practice and research endeavors at the Department of Surgery and Emory Transplant Center.

Dr. Larsen has made seminal contributions to the investigation of the immunologic mechanisms of transplant rejection and immunologic tolerance and is an internationally recognized leader in kidney and pancreas transplantation. He has been funded continuously by the NIH since 1996. Dr. Larsen's achievements are distinguished by his talent to successfully drive a discovery from the bench to the bedside using the rigor of the scientific method.
