2015 Medal for Research Excellence

Dr. David Rush’s pioneering work in the use of surveillance biopsies in transplantation made him the first to report the high prevalence of subclinical rejection in renal transplant recipients. With this research, he changed the understanding of the link between early chronic pathologic changes and long-term graft survival.

Dr. Rush is Professor, Dept. of Internal Medicine, College of Medicine at the University of Manitoba, as well as Medical Director of Transplant Manitoba – Adult Renal Transplant Program, and Past Head of the Section of Nephrology in the Dept. of Internal Medicine.

Dr. Rush joins an esteemed group of researchers who have received the medal since 1996. For more information visit
