CDTRP Research Connect Series

The CDTRP Research Connect fall series is taking place every other Tuesday at 1 pm ET until November 2023. Don’t forget to mark your calendars for this engaging series!

This series streamlines the subset of Theme, Hub, and Working Group meetings that aimed to share and discuss the latest research findings across the network and our Webinar series, which featured national and international speakers. Theme, Hub, and Working Group meetings aimed at developing new initiatives, projects, or grants will be scheduled separately, approximately three times per year per group. Our goal is to make it easy for our members to know about and attend high quality presentations across all Themes and topics of interest. We are aiming for active discussions including researchers, trainees, and patient, family, and donor partners, engaging the whole community as if we were having a family dinner rather than listening to a formal presentation.

Dr. Rohit Malyala – Explainable multimodal deep learning for informing bespoke goal-directed anesthesia in kidney transplantation

On October 3, 2023, we were pleased to have Dr. Rohit Malyala, postgraduate medical resident in Urology at University of British Columbia (UBC), under the supervision of Dr. Christopher Nguan, to present on the topic: “Explainable multimodal deep learning for informing bespoke goal-directed anesthesia in kidney transplantation” as part of the CDTRP Theme 3 – Engineer and Allocate Better Graft.

About Dr. Rohit Malyala

Rohit grew up in Ontario, and completed his undergraduate studies at McMaster University in Health Sciences. There, he became interested with kidney transplant in particular, working with different nephrologists in Toronto and Hamilton to study the kidney from both a wet lab and dry lab perspective. When Rohit came to UBC for undergraduate medicine, he became exposed to the surgical side of kidney transplant—which was his first introduction to the staff urologists at UBC. Over the course of medical school, taking on different projects in endourology and transplant, he became convinced that a career in urology was right for him, subsequently matching to UBC’s highly competitive postgraduate residency training program in Urology in 2023. He is a self taught computer programmer, machine learning and biostatistics enthusiast, and outside of work, enjoys exploring beautiful BC by motorcycle, staying active in the gym, and trying out different cafes in Vancouver.
