Laura Mazilescu

Laura Ioana Mazilescu graduated from Medical School at the University of Duisburg-Essen, Germany in December 2014 and has been working as a resident at the Department of General and Transplant Surgery at the Essen University Hospital, Germany since 2015.  While working as a surgical resident, she was given the opportunity to be a member of the team conducting the COPE-POMP trial, a multinational clinical trial which compared static cold storage with hypothermic oxygenated maschine perfusion in kidney transplantation. In order to enhance and consolidate her knowledge in organ preservation she joined Dr. Selzner´s research group in July 2018 for a research fellowship.
