Organ Transplantation

Northwestern Memorial Hospital's Kovler Organ Transplantation Center conducts several clinical trials to learn how to improve organ transplantation.

Current Clinical Trials

Kidney Transplantation  

Northwestern Memorial physicians are participating in a study funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to identify a non-invasive marker for transplant rejection. Our physicians are also involved in several clinical research trials to:

  • Improve the long-term function of transplanted kidneys
  • Evaluate new anti-rejection medicines
  • Refine the techniques involved in prednisone-free kidney transplants
  • Create desensitization protocols for patients who may have developed antibodies that can cause transplant rejection
