Organ Transplant Pioneers Celebrate Baylor Regional Transplant Institute's 25th Anniversary
Date:11/27/2009

plantation; William Bennett, M.D., a leader in the use of cyclosporine; and Doris Taylor, Ph.D., a lead researcher of the use of stem cells, genes and devices to develop cardiac and vascular technologies.

Many of BRTI's former fellows also came from countries including Israel and Japan to celebrate their alma mater's anniversary. Attendees also took part in a historic symposium commemorating BRTI's milestone.

"The gathering of these great minds is an immense honor to the team at Baylor that has strived for excellence in transplantation. We plan to maintain our status as a recognized world leader in both transplant science and patient care," added Dr. Klintmalm. "One way we will do this is not only by focusing on innovations in transplantation surgery, but also by researching alternative treatments."

Despite transplantation medical advancements, roughly 18 people die each day due to a shortage of donated organs. BRTI's efforts to fight the shortage include research into the use of stem cells to repair and create organs, "personalized" gene-based diagnosis and therapy of organs, and immune system treatment to reduce organ rejection.
