New Member Profile: Dr. Mike Moser, Indigenous organ donation and transplantation specialist and historical audiobooks addict

The CDTRP has been delighted to welcome many new members in 2020 and we are planning to welcome many more in 2021. We’ll be sharing information on their research expertise and interests through our New Member Profile series. Please join us this week in welcoming Dr. Mike Moser of University of Saskatchewan to Theme 1 (Create a culture of donation) of the CDTRP! 

What are your fields of expertise and interests in research?
  • Indigenous organ donation and transplantation and the Think Tank model as a way of learning more about this.
  • Organ Donor Awareness education of High School Students (since 2001 with Dr. Bill Wall).
  • Organ preservation and machine cold perfusion- biomarkers and pharmacological interventions.
What new areas of interest would you like to develop or with which different disciplines or specialist(s) would you like to collaborate within the CDTRP?

Most interested right now in collaborating on the national level in the area of Indigenous Organ Donation and Transplantation.

Tell us a fun fact about yourself!
  • I once had breakfast with Dr. Thomas Starzl at a conference and I didn’t know it until someone pointed it out to me later that afternoon.
  • I am addicted to historical audiobooks and sometimes have sat in the car in the parkade for 15 minutes before going into the hospital, just so I could get to the end of a chapter.
