There are many ways you can help children and their families get the care they need.
While a transplant can offer new hope and new opportunities, it also brings new obligations. To prevent rejection, your child will need to avoid certain situations, comply with restrictions and take medications for the rest of his or her life. It’s also what our dedicated teams of transplant researchers are working to change.
We focus primarily on preventing both short- and long-term lung transplant injury and creating therapies for long-term acceptance of transplanted lungs.
Our current research projects include:
Here at Boston Children’s, we have one of a handful of labs in the world capable of working with mice as models for lung transplant research, and we’re using mice to evaluate protocols with the goal of developing treatments we can one day bring to our patients.
Globally, lung transplant research has lagged behind other organ transplant research because, comparatively, there are fewer of them performed. Boston Children’s is hoping to help solve that problem by conducting research as a member of the International Pediatric Lung Transplantation Collaboration, an organization founded to give lung transplant researchers as much data to work with as possible.
We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
