The Washington University and Barnes-Jewish Hospital Transplant Center has one of the oldest and most established transplant programs in the country. Your gift supports the Center’s ability to pioneer procedures to treat patients with end-stage organ failure and provide some of the best outcomes in our region and our nation.


Innovation and Discovery

Too often, a transplant program’s ability to save lives is limited by the insufficient supply of donor organs. Nevertheless, the need for transplants—and the number of people on the wait list—grows. Your support changes the outlook for patients by providing physician-scientists with the vital resources to conduct and use innovative research to pioneer new procedures.

The care delivered by transplant nurses and nurse coordinators often goes beyond providing critical medical care; they are essential in helping patients remain motivated during the healing process and provide lifelong direct access for health care support. This kind of expertise requires specialized training and ongoing education. Hear how a grateful patient sparked generosity for transplant nurses.
