Transplant Center Training and Education

The Mayo Clinic Transplant Center actively supports a broad range of educational and training activities in solid organ and bone marrow transplantation. For more information on clinical training programs, visit the Mayo School of Graduate Medical Education.

Research training opportunities

Transplant Center faculty provide many research training opportunities to medical students, graduate students, postdoctoral research fellows, visiting trainees and visiting faculty through a variety of clinical and laboratory-based projects funded by the NIH as well as by other funding organizations. Areas of transplant-related research activity at Mayo Clinic include basic immunology, xenotransplantation, epidemiological studies of transplant outcomes, clinical trials in immunosuppression, pathological studies of transplant injury, innovative treatment protocols for sensitized patients, cellular immunotherapy, extracorporeal support devices, and genomic and proteomic studies. Research projects are facilitated by outstanding core laboratory facilities and animal care services, extensive clinical databases with statistical support, large libraries of patient-derived samples, specialized clinical trial support services, and a Clinical Research Unit (CRU). Research trainees benefit from the integration of clinical and research faculty within the Transplant Center and many research projects draw directly from the clinical practice in transplantation. The Center's didactic educational programs, including Transplant Grand Rounds, visiting faculty presentations, and core curriculum lectures, also bring together clinical and research trainees and their mentors.

Students and trainees interested in transplant-related research positions at Mayo Clinic should contact individual investigators or send inquiries by email to charlton.michael@mayo.edu.
