Steven W. Farber Transplant Award Fund
Announcing the Steven W. Farber Transplant Award Fund 2022-2023 Recipients
Wells’ passion for giving back to the transplant community started when he received the Gift of Life through a kidney donation from his father.
He is now pursuing a career in transplant surgery, starting with working towards completing the University of Colorado MD-PhD program.
Ivana is a first-generation college graduate. Her passion for transplant started when she joined the surgery research department during her first year of medical school to focus on challenges in organ transplant. Soon she realized that the scarcity of organ donations is only part of the battle.
Ivana is now studying to become a transplant surgeon at the University of Colorado School of Medicine.
