Donor Network West strives to increase the number of lives saved and healed through organ and tissue transplantation. In addition to transplantation, donation for research purposes may save and heal future lives through the advancement of medical research. Research donations help increase knowledge of diseases and allow for the development of novel medications to treat them.
We partner with researchers who analyze samples, conduct clinical trials at academic centers, work in industry laboratories to improve the outcomes of transplanted organs, and improve medicine for the general public.
Donor Network West is dedicated to working in close partnerships with researchers in academic medical centers, hospitals, universities, and biotechnology centers to advance the field of research through organ and tissue donations.
Some of our partners include:
- Stanford Medical Center
- UCSF Medical Center
- Carnegie Mellon University
- The University of Massachusetts (Dartmouth)
When families authorize donation for research, they allow their loved ones to build a long-lasting legacy of hope that could not be accomplished in any other way.
