Technologies to Optimize Kidneys for Transplant
The number of donor kidneys available for people with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) is currently insufficient. This workshop will focus on the scientific and technical barriers to enhanced evaluation, preservation, repair, and optimization of donor kidneys to improve organ utilization. The workshop will bring together experts from a wide range of disciplines to identify challenges and opportunities, stimulate multidisciplinary collaboration, and accelerate research.
This kick-off virtual event will be held to stimulate interest in and prioritize topics for a face-to-face conference that will be scheduled when feasible.
