Dr Victor Ilie (2010)

Dr Victor Ilie commenced a Master of Surgery by research in January 2010 using microsurgical methods to examine animal models of transplantation. He is examining ways to prevent rejection of transplanted organs without having to use powerful but potentially dangerous immunosuppressive drugs. Dr Ilie is from Romania but for the last 3 years has been working in Australia as a general surgeon.

He is keen to develop his microsurgical skills and came to Microsearch with a background in microsurgical teaching. His research work, which involves using rodent models of organ transplantation, will allow him to perfect his microsurgery. Additionally his experience in microsurgical teaching has provided valuable assistance in establishing the new microsurgery course at the University of Sydney.
