COMMITTEE LEADERSHIP:


COMMITTEE CO-CHAIRS:

Daniel R. Goldstein, MD
Yale New Haven Hospital
New Haven, CT, USA
203-785-3271
daniel.goldstein@yale.edu

As a physician-scientist and transplant immunologist, Dr. Goldstein examines how the innate immune system, in particular Toll-like receptors, impact alloimmunity and transplant tolerance. His work as a board certified transplant cardiologist affords him insights into whether preclinical immunological studies are relevant to solid organ transplantation. In addition, his research involves studies on how aging impacts innate immunity and the role of aging on alloimmmunity. In particular, his laboratory has discovered new pathways by which aging alters inflammation during acute viral infections, atherosclerosis, and information that age-induced inflammatory responses impact the tempo of acute allograft rejection and transplant tolerance.
