Kidney Transplant Transplant Services

A History of Pioneering Research

As exceptional as our results have been, Stanford Hospital’s Transplant Program continually conducts research to find new treatment methods that will improve outcomes and increase the quality of life of our patients for years to come.

Physicians and clinicians with the Program have a long history of research in transplant immunology and clinical immunosuppression. The team continues to focus research on strategies to minimize side effects of chronic immunosuppression, and to conduct trials that someday soon may eliminate the life-long need for anti-rejection drugs in some transplant patients.

You can also visit Stanford’s Institute for Immunity Transplantation and Infection which aims to understand and ultimately control how the immune system defends the body at the molecular and cellular levels.
