Ferran Coens, Belgium

Ghent University Hospital

Ferran Coens is a medical student at Ghent University, Belgium, where he participates in an Honours Program Education. He wrote his master’s thesis about long-term outcomes and factors associated with graft and patient survival after first and sequential paediatric kidney transplantation in the Eurotransplant member countries under the supervision of Prof. dr. Agnieszka Prytula. During the writing process of his thesis, Ferran Coens developed interest in paediatric kidney transplantation and he is determined to pursue further research in this area. At present, he is interested in analysis of large registry data, in particular how the relationship between a variable and death-censored graft loss varies over time. He aspires to become a paediatric nephrologist and hopes that his work will help guide transplant physicians to allocate the optimal donor graft for each transplant candidate.
