NUCTRIBE brings together researchers in transplant-related immunology and biomedical engineering who are working on immune tolerance, virus latency and reactivation, dendritic cell and Th-17 immunobiology, islet cell transplantation, tissue engineering, and many other fields. These researchers are building on successful individual research projects to build broad transdisciplinary collaborations that intend to solve the greatest challenges facing transplantation research. Faculty are interested in ideas for program and other large-scale grant opportunities that capitalize on Northwestern s strengths across departments and schools.
NUTORC is a broad collaboration of diverse investigators united in conducting transplant-related health services research. This collaboration includes members of the Comprehensive Transplant Center, Institute for Healthcare Studies, Department of Medical Social Sciences, Kellogg Graduate School of Management, McCormick School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, and others. Five workgroups, Transplantation Communication, Transplantation Quality of Life, Transplantation Risk Assessment/Economics, Health Informatics, and Transplantation Safety and Outcomes, serve as catalysts that unite experts from many disciplines in order to develop and carry out health outcomes research related to transplantation.
