Dr Pengel has been involved in the evaluation of the methodological quality of recently published randomised controlled trials (RCTs) in solid organ transplantation. These quality scores were first published as a regular Special Feature in the journal Transplantation and are now included in the Transplant Library. She has completed a systematic review on the incidence of wound complications and lymphoceles in solid organ transplant recipients on mTOR inhibitors and an overview of the quality of the reporting of RCTs and the compliance of RCT reports to the CONSORT items over a 3-year period. She is currently working on a project investigating the rate of publication of abstracts presented at scientific meetings. For COPE (Consortium of Organ Preservantion in Europe, www.cope-eu.org/) she is involved in two systematic reviews and the drafting of a trial protocol for a clinical trial comparing oxygenated versus non-oxygenated kidney transplants after cold storage. She is also involved in the development and marketing of the Transplant Library.

Dr Pengel is the main link in the collaboration between the ESOT and the CET. She has now taken on the role of CEO and co-director of the CET.
