Mayo Clinic experts actively research pancreas transplantation techniques and present their work at national and international meetings.

The Mayo Clinic Transplant Center supports a comprehensive Kidney and Pancreas Transplant Research Program.

Researchers at Mayo Clinic are developing an artificial pancreas that could significantly improve the quality of life for people with type 1 diabetes and potentially provide an alternative to pancreas transplant.

Mayo Clinic researchers in transplant immunology are also investigating ways to lower the rejection risk among transplant recipients and seeking new ways to treat people who need transplants of all types.
