Dr. Gary Levy has been the medical leader of UHN's Multiorgan Transplant Program (MOTP) for as long as any of us remember. Under Gary's leadership the Transplant Program has gone from a dream to being one of the very premier Transplant Programs in the world- if not THE best. Gary's leadership has resulted in substantial growth in transplant activity and his advocacy for organ donation in Ontario is resulting in an ever increasing numbers of patients receiving the gift of life.
Despite the time required to lead a busy and complex clinical program Gary continues to run a very successful laboratory and his work in understanding immune mechanisms of organ injury and the interface between immune activation and coagulation, as well as translational approaches to enhancing tolerance for transplanted organs, is recognized internationally.
Gary has recruited extremely wisely and our MOTP is recognized around the world for the terrific clinician-scientists who provide care to our patients. Gary is also the award winning Director of the CIHR Training Programme In Regenerative Medicine. Gary has forged a highly collaborative team in MOTP and Scott McIntaggart, Paul Greig, Charmaine Beal and Colleeen Shelton have worked with Gary since the early days of our program.
Gary wants to spend a bit more time with family and focusing on his lab efforts and has asked if he can step aside as Program Medical Director for MOTP in 2013. Accordingly Dr. Charlie Chan, Scott McIntaggart and I will serve as the Executive of a Search Committee which will initiate an international search for Gary's successor in the months to come. Gary has kindly agreed to continue in his current role until our next Director arrives on site.
We will have a chance to celebrate Gary's contributions to UHN as the leadership transition occurs but I wanted to let you all know of Gary's plans and the fact that we are starting a search to identify his successor.
