Since we performed the first transplant in Michigan, we have grown to be the largest transplant program in the state of Michigan and one of the largest in the nation.
We are dedicated to leadership in the development of innovative techniques, to improvement in the quality of life for organ transplant recipients, to education programs related to transplantation, and to enhanced organ donation awareness aimed at improving the availability of organs.
The University of Michigan Transplant Center's mission is to:
- Provide outstanding multi-disciplinary and integrated clinical care through the full continuum of progressive organ failure and transplantation
- Foster fundamental scientific discovery and innovative translational research in transplantation
- Develop future physician and scientific leaders in transplantation, and build referral base capability to manage patient populations
- Provide public policy leadership related to organ donation, progressive organ failure and disease prevention
