About us Practical matters How to find us dr. C. (Cyril) Moers

Research interests

Dr. Cyril Moers is transplant surgeon and researcher in the UMCG. His recent research has covered a whole spectrum of clinical and pre-clinical studies in kidney transplantation, focusing on interventions before or during organ preservation to better conserve organ quality and to quantify the impact that donor characteristics have on post-transplant outcome. He was secretary of the scientific steering committee of the international Machine Preservation Trial and authored several key publications on this topic, two of which appeared in The New England Journal of Medicine. His line of research now focuses on pre-transplant organ resuscitation and evaluation, for which he has been awarded a Kolff junior postdoc grant, a ZonMw Klinische Fellows grant and an Innovation Grant from the Dutch Kidney Foundation.
