About The Multi-Organ Transplant Program
The Multi-Organ Transplant Program at London Health Sciences Centre is one of the leading transplant programs in Canada, performing almost 200 transplants annually. More than 5,500 Canadians have received transplants, including kidney, liver, heart, kidney-pancreas, pancreas and multi-organ transplantation.
Patient-centred care has always been a hallmark of London’s transplant program. A close association between patient care and research – both basic research and clinical studies – has enabled us to move innovations quickly from the laboratory to the bedside.
The Impact of Your Gift
We have made numerous clinical and research breakthroughs, all of which have strengthened our program’s standing as an international leader in transplantation.
The funds raised will be directed to The Matthew Mailing Centre for Translational Transplant Studies as well as the MOTP Clinical Research Fund. This will ensure that our transplant researchers have access to funds that will assist their endeavours – whether it is basic research in the lab, clinical translational research, or patient studies in the clinic.
The Mailing Centre, located adjacent to the Multi-Organ Transplant Unit, provides transplant researchers with access to advanced molecular imaging, microsurgical techniques and pre-clinical transplant models.
Support for New Canvas of Life will be invaluable in expanding our research mission, ultimately improving the lives of transplant patients not only in London, but across Canada and internationally.
