About Us!


Constantinos Kapetanos


Hello, my name is Constantinos and I am a 6th 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

Hello, I am Dimitris and I am a 6th-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, or another member of our team, for questions and guidance!


Tjaša Zaletel


Hi, my name is Tjasa and I am a 6th 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.

Hey, I’m Fathima and I’m a 5th year at Robinson.

The necessity to remain calm under pressure, the required manual dexterity and the possibility for enacting more immediate change for patients is what draws me to surgery. I became particularly interested in transplant surgery after scrubbing into a liver transplant during my Emergency Surgery placement at Addenbrookes. I’m excited about the various events CUTS is planning for this year. Outside of Medicine I love cooking, drawing and swimming

Hello, my name is Neophytos and I am a 6th year medical student at Christ’s College, Cambridge. I am interested in surgery as I believe it is a really promising career choice that can make a huge difference in people’s lives by combining both medical knowledge and manual dexterity. Outside medicine, I like going to the gym, doing Muay Thai, and skiing when the weather permits

Natasha Reid

Events' Officer

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

I believe that a career in surgery is one of the most rewarding career choices for a doctor, and I am passionate about how transformative transplant surgery is for patients. Transplant surgery is also intertwined with some very challenging yet exciting ethical issues, some of which I explored during my intercalated degree. I'm really excited to start planning great events for CUTS this year!

Outside medicine I enjoy cooking, walking in the local countryside and flying planes

Events' Officer

Hi, I’m Dimitris, a 6th Year medical student at Queens’ College, Cambridge. 


Being a member of the CUTS allows me to explore my passion for surgical specialties alongside my colleagues. What I find fascinating about surgery is the way it combines the application of medical knowledge and the use of fine motor skills and coordination in a team environment. I am looking forward to organising exciting events that will bring the society together while allowing us to gain new experiences. 


In my spare time I enjoy playing basketball, playing the guitar, skiing and listening to music


Ana-Maria Lopez-Ruiz

Social Media Manager

Hi! I’m Ana Maria, a final year medical student at Sidney Sussex.

For the past 2 years I have fallen in love with transplant, from seeing my first liver transplant in fourth year to spending my elective in Colombia with the liver transplant team.

As social media manager, I want to increase accessibility to transplant for wider audiences. 

Other than medicine, I spend my time taking care of my hamster and baking.
