About Reinier de Vries

As a research fellow with a combined background in medicine and engineering, I focus on the development and translation of (bio)technological innovations in surgery. Considering the current donor organ shortage crisis, my research is focused on biopreservation for transplantation, ranging from cells to whole human organs. In particular, I am working on machine perfusion of liver and kidneys; high subzero liver preservation by supercooling and partial freezing; and isolation, slow freezing and vitrification of primary hepatocytes for their use in cell transplantation and bioartificial liver support systems
