He pursued research at the Great Ormond Street Hospital for Sick Children in London, winning the 1996 British Association of Pediatric Surgeons Prize for his pioneering work identifying phytosterols in soy-based lipid emulsions as a potential cause for parenteral nutrition-associated liver disease in patients with intestinal failure.   Kishore is a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of England and a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons.   Kishore trained in transplant surgery at Chicago and Omaha, working as a liver and intestinal transplant surgeon at Omaha for almost 4 years. He was responsible for establishing and directing the intestinal rehabilitation program, the first of its kind nationally, in Omaha, before moving to Chicago to establish and direct the intestinal transplantation and rehabilitation program at Northwestern University/Children’s Memorial Hospital.   He serves on the Pediatric Committee and the Policy Oversight Committees of UNOS (United network for Organ Sharing) and is Vice Chair of the International relations Committee.  He is also a past member of the Board of Trustees of the Oley Foundation, a large support group and information resource for patients with intestinal failure.   His current clinical and research interests are in the areas of surgical management of intestinal failure, intestinal transplant and TPN associated liver disease, as well as in mathematical modeling for complex medical decision-making.
