Dr. Flavio Vincenti, a kidney and pancreas transplant specialist, is board certified in internal medicine and nephrology. He came to UCSF Medical Center in 1975 for a transplant nephrology fellowship and was appointed a member of the kidney transplant team.

His memberships in professional organizations include the American Society of Nephrology, American Society of Transplantation, International Society of Nephrology and Transplantation Society. He is a co-leader of the kidney section of the Immune Tolerance Network for kidney transplantation. In addition, he is on the editorial board of the American Journal of Kidney Diseases and Graft.

In 1978, Vincenti was one of the authors of an article in the New England Journal of Medicine about the role of blood transfusions in improving kidney transplants. He also wrote a series of articles on the complications of transplants and has been a leading investigator and author on the use of anti interleukin 2 receptor monoclonal antibodies. In addition, he is a proponent of minimizing immunosuppressive drugs after transplants.
