Constantin Coussios, Professorial Fellow of Magdalen College, has been awarded the Royal Academy of Engineering’s prestigious Silver Medal. This is for his  “ground-breaking method of preserving functioning organs at body temperature”. Working closely with transplant surgeon Peter Friend, Professor Coussios co-founded the spin-out company OrganOx which is based at the Oxford Science Park run by Magdalen College. They developed the method into a medical device that could be manufactured and translated into clinical practice.
