Living Donor Collective Study

The Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients (SRTR), has partnered with 16 transplant programs across the country to establish a registry of living donors to follow long-term health outcomes after living donation. The UCLA Pancreas and Kidney Transplant Program has been selected as one of the transplant programs that will collect data for the project over a three-year period.

The major projected outcome is to collect data from all potential living donors. In partnership with the UCLA Pancreas and Kidney Transplant Program, the TREC team expects to begin collecting data in Winter 2018.
