Our liver transplant program, directed by John A. Goss, M.D., professor and chief of the Division of Abdominal Transplantation, is the largest in Houston’s Texas Medical Center and one of the busiest in the nation.

Faculty in the Division of Abdominal Transplantation are committed to research in areas such as adult and pediatric solid organ transplantation, liver disease, kidney disease, immunogenetics, bone marrow transplant outcomes, and chronic hepatitis C virus. Faculty associated with the Immune Evaluation Laboratory at Baylor College of Medicine, conduct studies on cellular and antibody immune responsiveness in relation to graft rejection, and immune response to allogeneic stem cell infusions for heart failure patients.
