How we do it



We collaborate and create

To shape the future of transplant

mtak 2

We want to partner with brilliant scientists to advance transplant.  We need to develop the tools needed for better research. We are developing investigator initiated trials, helping build research consortia, running and expanding international registries. Listed below are a few of the projects we are working on right now. Check back often as we will be releasing details of additional new projects we are working on.


MTA Consortia

We have aligned with Mark Stegall, MD, at the Mayo Clinic to help make a new type of research consortium possible in organ transplantation. The MTA-K (kidney) and MTA-P (pancreas) are two major research consortia that we have already help build. These consortia are comprised of world class transplant centers. The MTA mission is to improve the outcomes of kidney and pancreas transplant recipients through innovative and efficient clinical trials conducting by leading medical institutions around the world. We believe new innovation will be possible through the MTA.
