Paolo De Coppi is NIHR Professor of Paediatric Surgery at UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health. He leads one of a handful of research groups, worldwide, combining regenerative medicine with paediatric surgery. Following his extensive experience in organ decellularization, he was part of the team at Great Ormond Street Hospital that performed the first successful transplantation of a tissue-engineered trachea in a child. He has established the first centre performing foetal surgery in the UK. His team is conducting novel work investigating the use of miniaturizing instruments for the delivery of therapeutic solutions to foetuses, while minimizing maternal complications.
