Esophageal Division, Hospital Universitario Fundacion Favaloro, Buenos Aires, Argentina
Dr. Alejandro Nieponice is currently the Chief of The Esophageal Unit at Hospital Universitario Fundación Favaloro in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He is also a faculty member of the McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine at the University of Pittsburgh.
Dr. Nieponice’s main goal is to foster clinical translation of novel tissue engineering and minimally invasive approaches by bridging his surgical and research background. He has developed a program of interventional endoscopy for the treatment of early esophageal cancer and achalasia having one of the largest series of POEM in LatinAmerica.
His work has been recognized with more than 40 international abstracts, over 45 peer-reviewed publications, and 4 book chapters. He has served as reviewer for several journals of tissue engineering and biomaterials. The technologies he has been working on with his colleagues led to 3 inventions that are under patenting process. He is currently a founding member of the American Foregut Society (AFS), and member of the Argentinean Surgical Society (MAAC).View at list of Dr. Nieponice’s publications here: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed?term=%22nieponice%2C%20alejandro%22[All%20Fields]&cmd=DetailsSearch.
