Mr Nizam Mamode trained in Glasgow before moving to London in 2002. He also spent a short period at David Sutherland's unit in Minnesota. He retains strong links with this unit and the Mayo clinic.
He introduced laparoscopic donor nephrectomy into the unit, which now has the largest experience in the UK.
He has been part of the team which has set up blood group incompatible transplantation and he has led the team in the transplantation of highly sensitised patients, as well as helping to develop transplantation in HIV positive patients.
- blood group incompatible and HLA incompatible transplantation
- transplantation in HIV positive patients
- high risk living donor transplantation.
He has published over 40 papers and currently is Chief Investigator of a multicentre trial of B cell depletion in renal transplantion (the Remind Study).
Additionally he is running a NIHR funded study of antibiotics in live kidney donation, and a study of the psychosocial effects of living donation. He is principal investigator in two studes of eculizumab, a ground-breaking new therapy, in transplantation for highly sensitized patients. He is attempting to develop a method of implanting kidneys laparoscopically and is working on inducing tolerance using combined marrow and kidney transplantation. He has a strong interest in the ethics of transplantation.
He has completed a book 'Abominal Transplantation: State of the Art' and was made Reader in Transplantation Surgery in 2011.
