Welcome and Introductions – Dr. Istvan Mucsi

Dr. Mucsi is a CIHR-funded clinician investigator, a transplant nephrologist at the Ajmera Transplant Centre at UHN and an Associate Professor of Medicine at the University of Toronto. His research centers on reducing ethnocultural inequities in kidney transplant access. Collaborating with community organizations, he develops culturally responsive transplant education. In Health Canada-funded research, he analyzed quantitative and qualitative data from ~ 700 participants (~250 ACB community members) to gain insight into inequitable access to live donor kidney transplants.
