Dr. Badell received his MD from Baylor College of Medicine in 2006, after which he came to Emory for his general surgery residency and abdominal organ transplantation fellowship, which he completed in June 2015. Within this period of clinical training, he completed a pre-doctoral research fellowship in pathology at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and a post-doctoral research fellowship in transplant immunology at the Emory Transplant Center under the direction of Dr. Christian Larsen. During his clinical fellowship he re-engaged with the Emory Transplant Center’s research enterprise and focused on basic immunology and clinical trial investigations. His clinical practice consists primarily of kidney/pancreas transplantation. His research interests involve basic transplant immunology and clinical investigations aimed at optimizing the use of belatacept in kidney transplant recipients.
