Brief description The grant examines novel key regulators in organ transplantation. It examines molecules that are released during transplant surgery and on the return of blood flow to the organ which can cause inflammation and scarring. The release is increased by heparin, an anticoagulant used in organ preparation. Alternative anticoagulants and blockers of the regulators released will be tested to prevent the damage to the transplant, potentially improving both the short and long term graft survival and function.
