MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR DANIELA LADNER, MD, MPH
Welcome to Northwestern University Transplant Outcomes Research Collaborative (NUTORC). NUTORC builds upon the existing strengths of the transplant program at Northwestern and has created highly productive inter-school, multi-departmental, and trans-disciplinary collaborative initiatives. We bring together clinicians, health services and outcomes researchers and investigators with specific expertise in state-of-the art research methodologies to address pertinent questions in transplantation. Initiated in late 2008, these initiatives have already led to collaborative grant funding through NIH (National Institute of Health), AHRQ (Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality), NSF (National Science Foundation) and HRSA (Health Resources and Services Administration), in addition to other funding sources. We invite you to join us on this exciting path of collaborative work through NUTORC and our mission to define a new era in transplant outcomes research.
– Daniela Ladner, MD, MPH
