The Terasaki Research Institute, formerly known as the Terasaki Foundation Laboratory, is an independent non-profit research foundation that is affiliated with the University of California, Los Angeles. In collaboration with leading physicians, scientists, and the biotechnology/pharmaceutical industry, they aim to solve the major problems limiting the success of organ transplantation. They will build a better understanding of human immunology as it relates to the transplant patient. The Terasaki Research Institute’s work will supply the transplant community with a new understanding of how to achieve success in transplantation. Their ability to collaborate with the entire transplant community and organizations like the Transplant Research and Education Center (TREC) at UCLA is one of their major strengths. As an independent, non-profit research institute, they do research with transplant centers worldwide, serve as a core lab on research grants, work within research consortia, run major transplant registries, and they have research partnerships with many companies that develop new medications and technologies in transplantation.
