ODRC and AOPO Announce RFP for Organ Donation Research

The Organ Donation Research Consortium (ODRC) with additional support from the Association of Organ Procurement Organizations (AOPO) is pleased to offer up to $40,000 in funding to ODRC member(s) (or those willing to join and maintain ODRC membership through the life of the grant) conducting basic, translational or clinical research specifically related to the organization’s mission to advance the science of organ donation.

The ODRC seeks to sponsor research efforts that will ultimately improve the numbers and quality of organs available for transplantation in the United States. Applications are encouraged that focus on expanding our knowledge of donor management research, including, but not limited to, consent, organ donation physiology, clinical interventions to improve donor organs, and recipient outcomes. Single-center projects, for example, should specifically address the potential to generalize their findings to multisite settings.

Applications are due by 5:00 p.m. Pacific Standard Time on July 1, 2016. Additional information, including eligibility and submission requirements, are available on the ODRC website.
