The Mid-America Transplant Foundation plans to give more than $780,000 in funding for research projects seeking to make a difference in the lifesaving impact of organ and tissue donation and transplantation. The funding marks an important milestone in the history of the Foundation as it seeks to improve transplantation by supporting clinical and pre-clinical research.
“This is a historic milestone for Mid-America Transplant,” said President and CEO of Mid-America Transplant, Diane Brockmeier. “For the first time in our organization’s history, our Foundation is investing in research that could help hundreds of people waiting for a lifesaving transplant. The projects funded by the Foundation are truly working toward a brighter future for transplant patients and their families.”
