Islet Cells Transplant Update: Peter Stock, M.D., Ph.D. at TEDxDelMar

Our theme for TEDxDelMar 2011 was "A Search For A Cure". In this video, Dr. Stock gives us his talk entitled "Islet Cells Transplant Update". Peter Stock is Professor of Surgery and heads up the solid organ pancreas transplant program as well as pancreatic islet cell program. He was trained at the University of Minnesota, completing a surgical residency before coming to UCSF for a transplant fellowship. He joined the UCSF faculty in 1992. A frequent presenter on issues related to transplantation and immunosuppression, he is an active teacher and supervisor of surgical residents and fellows. He holds membership in numerous professional and honorary societies. Stock is clinically active in liver, kidney and pancreas transplantation. Stock's current basic science research interests involve the induction of transplantation tolerance to block both alloimmunity as well as recurrent autoimmunity following pancreatic islet transplantation. On a clinical level, results from these studies can be directly applied to the protection of human pancreatic islets following transplantation into recipients. Finally, he is the principal investigator on a study to determine the safety and efficacy of solid organ transplantation in the HIV positive recipient. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.
