There is no standard definition for “HLA incompatible” transplants. For the first time, we systematically assessed how HLA incompatibility was defined in contemporary peer-reviewed publications and its prognostic implication to transplant outcomes.
The effectiveness of the fourth BNT162b2 vaccination in reducing the rate and severity of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by the Omicron variant in renal transplant recipients (RTRs) is unknown.
Successful intestinal transplantation is currently hindered by graft injury that occurs during procurement and storage, which contributes to postoperative sepsis and allograft rejection. Improved graft preservation may expand transplantable graft numbers and enhance posttransplant outcomes. Superior transplant outcomes have recently been demonstrated in clinical trials using machine perfusion to preserve the liver. We hypothesized that machine perfusion preservation of intestinal allografts could be achieved and allow for transplantation in a porcine model.
Studies have shown that coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) vaccination is associated with a lower humoral response in vulnerable kidney patients. Here, we investigated the T-cell response following COVID-19 vaccination in kidney patients compared with controls.
The missions of each Pillar are as follows:

The Women in Transplantation executive is very excited to announce the 2023 WIT funding opportunities. This year, we are thrilled to be able to support THREE 2-year Fellowships. This will be the third year that we are offering these fellowships.
In addition, for the first time, we are also offering ONE grant open to faculty working in low or middle income countries. This very special new grant will allow transplant professionals working in low and middle income countries to work with an experienced mentor from among the WIT membership to address an important question within their own unique context. We hope that this award will spur exciting international collaborations and build more research capacity in lower resource settings.
If you have any further questions and for information on how to apply, please contact Katie Tait (WIT Manager) at firstname.lastname@example.org to request more information.
We welcome all applications and look forward to an exciting competition!
