Paolo Macchiarini, M.D., Ph.D. is a professor of regenerative surgery at Karolinska Institute, Sweden and one of the pioneers of regenerative medicine in the world.
Dr. Macchiarini completed his residency in thoracic surgery at the University of Pisa in Pisa, Italy. Dr. Macchiarini completed a fellowship in the department of thoracic surgery at the University of Alabama at Birmingham in Birmingham, Alabama, with an additional fellowship completed in the department of thoracic and vascular surgery and heart-lung transplantation, Hôpital Marie-Lannelongue, Paris-Sud University, Le Plessis Robinson, France.
Dr. Macchiarini's interests include extended surgery for lung, esophageal, and mediastinal tumors; adult and pediatric tracheal surgery; lung and heart-lung transplantation; pulmonary endarterectomy; (bio)artificial lung; and experimental research, education, training.
Paolo Macchiarini has contributed to the field of Regenerative medicine when in 2008 he performed the first Adult stem cell grown trachea transplant.
 On June 9, 2011 at Karolinska University Hospital in Stockholm, Sweden, doctors including Dr. Paolo Macchiarini implanted a synthetic windpipe into a 36-year-old man with late-stage tracheal cancer (in detail).
The second patient receiving a synthetic windpipe was another cancer patient from Baltimore, who was operated on in Stockholm in November 2011. Among the patients candidate to surgery there is also a korean baby, Hannah Warren, who was born (in August 2010) with an underdeveloped trachea and survived thanks to a tube inserted in a bronchus through the oesophagus and an aesophagus-broncus fistula.
The surgery based on Professor Paolo Macchiarini’s technique was also carried out in December 2010 in the Petrovsky Research Center of Surgery of the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences in Moscow.
