Michael Rees, MD, PhD

Chief Executive Officer
844.735.8832 | C 419.346.8066
drrees@rejuvenatehealthcare.com

Dr. Rees received his medical degree from the University of Michigan, where he graduated Alpha Omega Alpha, and received his PhD in immunology from the University of Cambridge, England, where he also did his fellowship in transplantation under Professor Sir Roy Calne. Dr. Reese led the team that developed the first web-based kidney paired donation (KPD) matching program, resulting in one of America’s first computer-matched KPD transplants in November 2004. In 2006, he founded the Alliance for Paired Donation, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that now has over 80 participating transplant centers in 30 states and has produced transplants for hundreds of patients. Dr. Rees is the author of The New England Journal of Medicine paper that has transformed kidney paired donation into pay-it-forward, nonsimultaneous, altruistic donor-initiated chains instead of traditional two-way “swaps,” and his work has been highly publicized in national news programs and print media.
