Mayo Clinic scientists, doctors and surgeons develop pancreas and kidney transplant advances that make transplants safer and available to more people.
Mayo's teams conduct laboratory studies, clinical trials and other clinical research on every aspect of conditions related to pancreas and kidney transplants. They often collaborate with other centers nationwide and abroad, sharing their advances to improve patient care everywhere.
Mayo Clinic researchers are also focused on eliminating the need for pancreas transplant. For example, they are leaders in a major artificial pancreas study involving five U.S. centers and three in Europe. An effective artificial pancreas would mean people with type 1 diabetes could control it without surgery.
