Bridging the Organ Gap: Breakthroughs in Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine

When:
Thursday, May 23, 2019
3:00pm - 4:00pm ET/ 12:00pm - 1:00pm PT           

Purpose/Goal:

More than ever, novel technologies have the capability to increase the number of transplantable organs, tissues and vascular composite allografts (VCAs) to awaiting recipients. By means of engineered tissues, decellularization and recellularization, as well as ex vivo perfusion, healthcare professionals are finding ways to maximize the gift of donation and enhance transplant outcomes. Join us and our esteemed panel as they share their progress in transforming transplant technology!

Learning Objectives:

At the end of the webinar, participants should be able to:

  • Describe the varying technologies that are enabling previously declined organs to be placed with transplant recipients or in the clinical translation pathway and the associated challenges.
  • Discuss standard donation practices with current and future technologies to determine timelines, cost and impact.
  • Determine best ways to relay these innovative opportunities to a donor family or recipient.
  • Describe current research approaches for decellularized and recellulairzed organs and VCAs.
  • Describe methods to increase applicability of VCAs to more recipients through induction of immunologic tolerance.

Moderator/Speakers:

  • Curtis L. Cetrulo, Jr., M.D., FACS, FAAP
  • Julie G. Allickson, PhD
  • Gina Dunne Smith (Moderator)
