Constantinos Kapetanos

Co-President

Hello, my name is Constantinos and I am a fourth-year medical student at Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge.


I am very passionate about surgery as a career. I find Transplant surgery in particular to be an exciting field that incorporates a multitude of disciplines which align with my scientific and medical interests including genetics, immunology and regenerative medicine.

 

Outside of medicine, I generally spend my time playing tennis, listening to music and trying my luck in learning the basics of Spanish. For any queries, please contact me at kk634@cam.ac.uk

Co-President

Hello, I am Dimitris and I am a 4th-year medical student at Christ's College, Cambridge.


CUTS summarises my 3 passions in terms of medicine: Surgery, Biomedical Technology and Clinical Research. Through this society, we aim to explore the aforementioned 3 axes in an interdisciplinary fashion, as well as establish a platform for the exchange of knowledge, ideas and inspiration!


Outside medicine, my hobbies include playing chess and pool with friends. Do not hesitate to contact me at da464@cam.ac.uk, or another member of our team, for questions and guidance!

Tjaša Zaletel

Secretary

Hi, my name is Tjasa and I am a 4th year medical student from Peterhouse. Coming from a small country, I was surprised to learn Slovenia tops global heart transplant statistics with 11 per million population and is among top ten in organ donation in Europe. While the only visible mark after organ donation is the surgical incision, the entire donation process is founded on the principles of voluntary and unpaid donation, and must be carried out with respect, safeguarding the dignity of the donor and the family of the deceased. I think it is important for everyone to acknowledge the complexity of transplantation and I hope to achieve this as part of CUTS committee.

Chris Lai

Events' Officer

Hey guys, I’m Chris and I'm a 5th year clinical student. I’m very much interested in transplant immunology, haematology and medical education, and hope to organise a variety of events and resources that appeal to both the keen-bean future transplant surgeons, and those who just want the brass tacks of immunology and transplant surgery for finals and foundation years.

Hobbies include: tennis, nerding out over coffee, coming up with ever more creative excuses to leave the ward round early.
Proudest achievement: has to be winning the Sherwood Games FIFA tourney.
