About

James Adam Shapiro, MD, was born in Leeds, England, son of a family doctor. He studied Medicine in Newcastle and trained in Surgery in Bristol. He developed a longstanding interest in islet transplantation as a medical student. He came to Canada 20 years ago to train in liver and multiorgan transplant surgery, and has been on Faculty at the UofA since 1998. James led the team that developed and tested the ?Edmonton Protocol? and was the lead author on their seminal NEJM paper in 2000. This protocol revolutionized the treatment for Type 1 Diabetes, as for the first time a series of patients were able to completely stop their life-sustaining insulin injections. He has brought in more than $75 million to the UofA for his research. He is currently leading a National Canadian project in ex-vivo organ transplant repair, and has active clinical trials in Edmonton testing out caspase inhibitors and new subcutaneous devices for islet transplantation. Dr. Shapiro is the recipient of a Gold Medal in Surgery, a Governor-General?s Gold Medal, is a prestigious Hunterian Professor of the Royal College of Surgeons of England, and is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada. He continues to lead the Edmonton Protocol team which just completed a record 400 transplants (and 61 in the last 12 months) ? by far the biggest program of its kind worldwide. Dr. Shapiro has developed cutting edge stem cell transplant trials for children and adults just diagnosed with diabetes, and these will be entering clinical trials shortly. He was recently awarded a prestigious Canada Research Chair in Transplant Surgery and Regenerative Medicine.
