Organ Recovery & Regeneration for Transplantation

Tuesday, October 26, 2021, at 2:00pm

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.
