Dorry Segev has a BA and BS from Rice University and an MD, MHS, and PhD from Johns Hopkins. He is professor of surgery and epidemiology and associate vice chair of surgery at Johns Hopkins University, founder and director of the Epidemiology Research Group in Organ Transplantation, and a member of the National Academy of Medicine.

Segev's transplantation work has directly influenced U.S. policy, including two Congressional bills (the Norwood Act for kidney exchange and the HOPE Act for HIV-to-HIV transplants). While his major research interest has been organ transplantation, in the light of the current pandemic, Segev has recently expanded his research to better understand COVID-19 and its implications for solid organ transplantation. This work was presented by Anthony Fauci at multiple White House briefings and directly motivated the FDA/CDC changes to allow boosters for immunocompromised patients.
