Dr. Thomas Pearson Named New Emory Transplant Center Director

Dr. Thomas C. PearsonAs a follow-up to our recent post announcing Emory Transplant Center’s own Christian P. Larsen, MD, DPhil as the new dean of the Emory University School of Medicine, vice president for Health Center Integration for the Robert W. Woodruff Health Sciences Center, and chairman of the Board of Directors of The Emory Clinic, we wanted to follow-up with more exciting news. Thomas C. Pearson, MD, DPhil, has been named executive director of the Emory Transplant Center, effective January 15, 2013. Pearson currently is associate director of the Emory Transplant Center, a position he has held since the center’s founding in 2001. He is surgical director of the kidney and pancreas transplant program and Livingston Professor of Surgery in Emory University School of Medicine. He also is an affiliate scientist at Yerkes National Primate Research Center.

“I am so pleased to have Tom Pearson take the reins as the executive director of the Emory Transplant Center. Tom and I have been the closest of friends and collaborators for the past 25 years,” says Larsen. “No one has contributed more to the Emory Transplant Center and our patients than Tom. His impact spans the strategic direction of the center, the culture of collaborative multidisciplinary care and research and the countless hours he gives day and night to patient care. I cannot imagine a more qualified physician, researcher or terrific individual to lead the Transplant Center on its future course.”
