То improve the outcomes of transplant recipients.


То facilitate innovative clinical and translational research in solid organ transplant recipients through partnership between like-minded clinical centers, researchers, industry, and funding agencies.


The major advantage of having а group like ours is that clinical studies саn bе performed with greater efficiency, quality, and innovation.

  1. lnfrastructure for “one-stop shopping” including contracting, protocol development, uniform data collection, etc. А major goal is to decrease the time from concept to initiation.
  2. Collaborative centers – streamlined enrollment, decrease time to completion of the studies.
  3. AII programs perform similar detailed follow-up as рагt of standard of саге.
  4. Biobank of allograft tissue and serum.
  5. Staff with time dedicated to these activities.

Current Multicenter Studies

NIH UO1 AI 96326 Using intragraft gene expression to predict subsequent decline in renal function (MCR, MCA, MCF, Henry Ford) – PI: Mark Stegall, M.D. (MCR)

Retrospective study of de novo DSA (MCR, MCA, Cornell, University of Michigan)

Areas of Interest

  1. Renal transplantation and the development of intervention trials.
  2. Development of a multicenter data warehouse for all types of studies, both prospective and retrospective.
  3. MTA will have both the breadth of data currently only available in large registries and detailed data currently only found in single centers.
