Dr. Tim Taber has retired as chief medical officer of the Indiana Donor Network. He has been with the organization for 10 years.
Taber, oversaw the Indiana University Health kidney and pancreas transplantation programs. He coordinated organ, tissue and eye donations across Indiana. Taber also improved and furthered education on the organ donation and transplantation process by working with hospital administrators and medical professionals across the state.
He has served in various medical and research advisory positions with organizations such as the United Network for Organ Sharing (more commonly known as UNOS), among others.
Taber says it has been an honor to work with organizations whose work he strongly supports. “I have been on both sides of the equation. I take care of patients who need a transplant, and then I take care of them after receiving a transplant. I understand the importance of the work Indiana Donor Network does, and for the rest of my life, if there is something I can do for the organization, I’ll do it.”
Although he is retiring from his role with Indiana Donor Network, Taber will continue to serve patients through his work with Indiana University Health. He will also help with the transition to Indiana Donor Network’s next chief medical officer.
