Professor Anthony Warrens


Medical interests: General nephrology; renal transplant medicine; renal and transplantation immunology.



I have a long-held professional and academic interest in nephrology in general and organ transplantation in particular. Transplantation biology has developed enormously over recent years and our advances in understanding rejection and the expansion of agents available to prevent and treat it have remarkably enhanced outcomes for patients over the years. I was recently honoured to be elected as President of the British Transplantation Society, which role I take up in March 2013. I am also a member of the Department of Health’s Advisory Committee on Safety in Blood, Tissues and Organs and the UK Donation Ethics Committee.

Medical training

Professor Anthony Warrens studied Immunology at Glasgow University and completed his pre-clinical medical education there before moving to Oxford University Medical School for clinical training. He subsequently undertook a PhD at the Hammersmith Hospital, London, now part of Imperial College London, gaining clinical experience at several hospitals in London. After a post-doctoral fellowship at the Massachusetts General Hospital, part of Harvard Medical School in Boston, USA, he returned to the UK as Consultant Renal Physician and Senior Lecturer at Hammersmith Hospital. He became Professor of Renal and Transplantation Medicine at Imperial in 2008.
