Join representatives from across the donation and transplantation community of practice for a specialized one-day summit on the evolving state of normothermic regional perfusion (NRP) with respect to thoracic and abdominal organs. This collaborative summit will include the many different perspectives on NRP, and will be a fast-paced exploration of legal, ethical, financial and clinical aspects, as well as the impacts to donor management and hospital relationships. The Alliance is not an advocacy organization and always intends to maintain an objective and unbiased perspective.
