Transplantation Research Program

As a national leader in pediatric transplant research, the Siragusa Transplantation Center has initiated new methods of studying end-stage organ failure and transplantation in children. Research focuses on several areas, including stem cells, tissue regeneration, surgical innovations, monitoring immune responses, and management of medications that suppress the immune system. Clinical trials conducted at the center provide opportunities for patients to participate in research that increases the knowledge base of the medical community and improve standards of pediatric care. The center also collaborates with other institutions and organizations on national and international research projects that are advancing transplant care for children. Learn more about the Transplantation Research Program.
