Clinical Trials

Clinical trials play a crucial role in advancing the science of medicine through human trials. Patients participating in clinical trials often have access to the very latest medications and protocols that may not otherwise be available. Clinical trial participants are actively contributing to the advancement of science as their participation helps perfect future treatment options for transplant patients. 

These are the current clinical trials conducted by the UM Division of Transplantation:
