Alex Cuenca | Professional History

Dr. Cuenca completed his medical school, graduate school, and residency at the University of Florida in Gainesville, Fl. During his research hiatus in residency, he obtained a PhD examining the role of innate immunity and toll-like receptor signaling in neonatal sepsis. He then went on to complete a fellowship in Pediatric Surgery at Boston Children’s Hospital. Due to his interest in pediatric hepatobiliary disease and transplant medicine, he went on to complete a fellowship in Transplant Surgery at Massachusetts General Hospital. He is clinically interested in pediatric hepatobiliary and pancreatic disease, solid organ transplantation, mid-aortic vascular disease, and other general surgical conditions of children. His research efforts are focused on examining the role of innate immunity in allograft tolerance, as well as novel efforts to expand the utility of normothermic machine perfusion for use in solid organ transplantation.
