My name is Malay Shah; I am the Surgical Director of the Liver Transplant Program. I am from
the Cincinnati area and attended college at the University of Cincinnati. While in Cincinnati,
I worked closely with individuals who were involved in transplant and immunosuppression
outcomes research. At this time I developed a keen interest in transplantation. I
subsequently attended medical school in Toledo, Ohio at the Medical College of Ohio, and then
completed a general surgery residency at the Medical College of Georgia.
I completed a
transplant surgery fellowship at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. When I finished
my training, I eagerly jumped at the opportunity to come to the University of Kentucky and
return to the area I consider home.
My interests include liver, kidney and pancreas transplantation. I also have significant interests in hepatobiliary surgery, liver tumors cholangiocarcinoma and vascular access for patients with renal failure. I have a keen interest in socioeconomic and healthcare disparities and their impact on organ donation. I actively participate in national organizations such as the United Network of Organ Sharing as well as multiple transplant societies.
