Transplantation is a life-saving treatment for children with organ failure – but unfortunately it is not yet a cure. Research is critical in our effort to further improve the health and wellness of transplant recipients and their families.
The Solid Organ Transplant Research Program was established in 2014 and supports research efforts for kidney, heart and liver transplant recipients and in transplant infectious diseases. We offer many different opportunities for patients and families to participate in cutting-edge research. That includes discovering new ways to preserve transplant function, new tests to identify rejection, and better tools to improve physical and mental health rehabilitation after their transplant.
