Organ Recovery & Regeneration for Transplantation

Tuesday, October 26, 2021, at 2:00pm – 3:00pm EDT / 11:00am – 12:00pm PDT

Purpose / Goal

This webinar will introduce the breakthrough concept of organ cross-circulation and its potential to support organ recovery and regeneration. With all the advancements in transplantation, still only 1 in 5 donor lungs are used for transplant. Bearing that in mind, innovative technologies are needed for organ repair, however, current organ machine perfusion systems have limitations to recover severely injured organs. Join us to learn more about the cross-circulation platform and its potential benefits as it relates to organ recovery and transplantation.

Learning Objectives

  • Describe the severe shortage of donor organs.
  • Outline the current limitations of existing organ machine perfusion systems to recover severely injured organs.
  • Explain the concept of organ cross-circulation and its potential to support organ recovery and regeneration.
