The future of organ transplantation: a talk at the Cambridge Science Festival
March 22, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
BTRU researchers are once again giving a lecture at the Cambridge Science Festival, this year looking at the future of organ transplantation from a young researcher’s perspective.
Organ transplants save lives and improve quality of life for recipients and their families. Although more than 50,000 people in the UK are alive today because of organ transplantation, demand for organs still outstrips supply in every country in the world. It is estimated that in the UK three people die every day while waiting for a transplant. Researchers worldwide are endeavouring to improve this picture and increase the quality and quantity of organs available. BTRU Director Professor Mike Nicholson introduces some of the young researchers in his team to talk about their latest work and about the developments in transplantation they hope to see in the future.
