EVENTS'Healthcare Laid Bare' - professional networking event

Thursday, Feb 24, 2022, 5:30 PM

How is 3D printing revolutionising organ transplants and what was it like operating with 1950s surgical instruments in ‘The Crown’?

Just some of the questions Old Citizens and parents can ask transplant surgeon Dr Pankaj Chandak (Class of 1995), one of the five amazing panellists at CLS Alumni team's next professional networking event: ‘Healthcare laid bare’ on 24 February.

Pankaj is an adult and paediatric transplant surgery specialist and a researcher who, in 2015, pioneered the first use of 3D printing in paediatric transplantation, which won The Royal Society of Medicine Norman Tanner Medal, The British Science Association Charles Darwin Award Lecture and more recently the Combined Royal Colleges Medal from the RPS.

Pankaj works at Guy’s, Evelina London and Great Ormond Street Hospitals as well as King's College London and UCL. His scientific interests include complex paediatric transplantation as well as translational research into machine perfusion therapy of human organs and regeneration and public engagement in science. Pankaj is the Medical Director to the Netflix series "The Crown" and even acted the part of the surgeon operating on King George VI. In 2018, he set up the UK's first transplant children’s choir ‘Harmonies of Hope’ with BBC Children in Need.
