Xenotransplantation Interview Research

Hello everyone,


My name is Abigail and I have almost completed my Master’s degree at The University of Exeter in the UK. This year, we were tasked with choosing a dissertation topic and I really wanted to make a difference with my research. I have followed the development of xenotransplantation (animal to human organ or tissue transplants) in the news for the past few years with interest. Reading research papers, I was intrigued by the abundance of medical and scientific literature in comparison to the sparse attention paid to the psycho-social effects of this practice.

I am therefore looking for participants for my study on the psycho-social effects of xenotransplantation. I am specifically interested in how the practice affects identity and selfhood. I am interested in speaking to recipients of any type of xenotransplantation, which include:

  1. animal external therapies
  2. cellular therapies
  3. transplantation of whole organs

Full anonymity will be preserved and I am able to interview by messenger, skype or any other means that are appropriate and convenient for participants. I will not take up too much of your time, and conversations will be relaxed and informal. A full information sheet will be provided to participants before commencing and you are able to withdraw at any point without giving a reason.

Please do not hesitate to contact me here or on my email ab1046@exeter.ac.uk 

Many thanks, 

Abbi
