This webinar will provide an overview of the recently released (October 10, 2017) National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine report, Opportunities for Organ Donor Intervention Research: Saving Lives by Improving the Quality and Quantity of Organs for Transplantation.

This report examines the ethical, legal, and regulatory challenges posed by organ donor intervention research to test and assess interventions (e.g., medications, devices, and donor management protocols) to maintain or improve organ quality prior to, during, and following transplantation. This research focuses on interventions administered either while the organ is still in the deceased donor or after it is recovered from the donor but before it is transplanted into a recipient. The committee’s framework for this research and recommendations for oversight will be discussed with an emphasis on ensuring that the integrity of the donation and transplantation process is maintained and that fully using the gift of the donated organ has the highest priority in all phases of this research.
