The June episode of JHLT: The Podcast is now live, and features a first for the podcast—an interview with a JHLT author! In this episode, host Daniel R. Goldstein, MD, Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Heart and Lung Transplantation, conducts an interview of Kiran Khush, MD, MAS, member of the ISHLT Board of Directors and Professor of Medicine and Director of Heart Transplant Research at Stanford University.

In the episode, Dr. Khush is interviewed by JHLT Digital Media Editors Erika Lease, MD, David Schibilsky, MD, and Van-Khue Ton, MD, PhD, on her state of the art review, entitled “Clinical utility of donor-derived cell-free DNA testing in cardiac transplantation,” which appears in the June issue of JHLT.

During the discussion, Dr. Khush answers key questions about donor derived cell-free DNA and helps “de-mystify” the importance of this assay to listeners. This is a fascinating discussion with practical clinical applications that you won’t want to miss.
