Program Objectives

  • Understand that T-cell-mediated rejection can cause early graft loss but may be manageable with immunosuppressive therapies
  • Understand how antibody-mediated rejection can lead to chronic kidney transplant rejection through multiple mechanisms and is a major contributor of late graft loss
  • Recognize how advances in understanding rejection at the molecular level may improve detection and diagnostics
  • Identify treatment options for antibody-mediated rejection
