Leading Transplant Research

  • We're doing research every day to push the boundaries and expand the possibilities for transplant patients. Our research has shaped how other transplant programs around the world care for their patients. Our current trials, sponsored by the National Institutes of Health, include:

    • Research into transplant genomics for biomarkers (indicators of the presence of disease)
    • The use of 3D printers to "print," or create, organs for patients
