P. Brennan Hart, EsqPietragallo Gordon Alfano Bosick & Raspanti, LLP
P. Brennan Hart, Esq., donated a kidney to one of his children more than 20 years ago. He has been an avid promoter of organ donor awareness and protection, research into less toxic immunosuppressants, and research into artificial implantable kidneys. Since kidney disease and related issues have directly impacted him and affect tens of millions of people throughout the country, Hart is honored to be on the Board of the National Kidney Foundation to help raise awareness, promote public policies, encourage living organ donation, and seek support for much needed research.
Hart would like to see the number of living and deceased organ donations increase dramatically. In the short term, he would like to see a significant increase in research by the pharmaceutical companies on anti-rejection drugs with far fewer side effects. He also hopes to see a development of an artificial implantable kidney within the next five years.
