Dr. Darla Granger completed her general surgery and abdominal transplant surgery fellowships at the University of Minnesota. Her research at Minnesota involved the original large-animal studies in sirolimus and the evaluation of donor-specific blood transfusions in SLA-identified miniature swine under the mentorship of Drs. Arthur Matas and Marc Jenkins.

After fellowship, Dr. Granger accepted a position at the University of Louisville where she managed the immunosuppression for the first two hand transplants performed in the United States and began her ongoing interest in vascularized composite allotransplantation.

In 2002, Dr. Granger moved to the Detroit area. She maintains a clinical appointment at Wayne State University where she is involved in medical student education. For the last eight years, Dr. Granger has been at St John Hospital and Medical Center. She and her partner, Dr. Henry Oh, maintain an active clinical kidney and pancreas transplant program there.

Dr. Granger is assistant program director of the general surgery residency program at St John and part of the core teaching faculty. She chairs the advisory board of the OPO and has been active in ASTS committees (inaugural Vanguard committee, Ethics, Standards, Bylaws and Vascularized Composite Allotransplantation).
