Transplant Research and Education Center (TREC)

For both adult and pediatric patients, the Transplant Research and Education Center (TREC) designs and conducts research and educational interventions about kidney disease, transplant, and living donation. TREC’s mission is to inspire and educate people about kidney transplantation and living donation, design patient-centered health measures for transplant, reduce racial disparities in transplant, increase transplant and living donation rates, and ensure transplant adherence. TREC's vision is to increase transplant and living donation rates and solve the kidney donor shortage. Our vision will be achieved when:
  • More people are inspired and educated about kidney transplantation and living donation
  • Patient-centered health measures for transplant have been designed and implemented nationally
  • Racial disparities in transplant are being reduced across the country
  • More transplants, especially living donor transplants, are occurring
  • Medication adherence rates after kidney transplant have increased
