Dr. Venkat is involved with clinical research studies related to pediatric liver disease and liver transplant outcomes. She is an active co-investigator in iWITH, a clinical trial of immunosuppression withdrawal in stable pediatric liver transplant recipients. Her focus has been on the long term graft health, safety outcomes and reversibility of rejection during immunosuppression withdrawal. Her clinical work with the liver transplant program has led to publications in challenging pediatric liver transplant populations including primary sclerosing cholangitis, re-transplantation, and strategies to improve patient adherence to the medical regimen. Dr. Venkat is a co-investigator in the Childhood Liver Disease Research Network (ChiLDReN) and has worked collaboratively to further understand the natural history and outcomes of children with cholestatic liver diseases such as biliary atresia and Alagille syndrome. This collaboration includes her role as site lead in PRIME, A Phase I/IIa Trial of Intravenous Immunoglobulin (IVIG) Therapy Following Portoenterostomy in Infants with Biliary Atresia.
