The Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients has an important role in the nation’s organ transplantation system and serves many audiences. Follow links on this page to learn more about SRTR and its Technical Advisory Committee, and about the national Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network, the Chronic Disease Research Group, and the Minneapolis Medical Research Foundation.
The SRTR is administered by the Chronic Disease Research Group (CDRG)
of the The Minneapolis Medical Research Foundation (MMRF). CDRG investigators and staff together with SRTR senior staff from around the country have substantial experience working on large epidemiologic projects such as SRTR, and have published research reports in peer-reviewed journals covering such topics as transplant patient mortality, morbidity, and quality of life; allocation of organs and organ transplant waiting lists; and patient survival and other outcomes after transplant.
