Clinical Research

As a partner with Yale School of Medicine and Yale New Haven Hospital, we are committed to developing new strategies to improve transplant care through clinical research, including clinical trials and basic science research.

Our active research environment has led to the development of new and effective surgical techniques, immunosuppressive regimens, and protocols for the treatment of rejection and other critical medical complications of transplantation.

We are actively researching ways to decrease the gap between patients needing a transplant and organ availability, including increasing the donor pool with the use of living donations and split livers, and reducing the number of patients with end-stage organ disease.

By participating in a clinical trial, you may get access to the most advanced treatments that may be otherwise unavailable. You’ll also play a part in helping to determine their benefits for future patients.
