Our speaker, Dr. Joseph Leventhal, discussed his groundbreaking efforts to engineer stem cells. Initial results have enabled five patients to stop taking all anti-rejection medications in just one year after they received a new kidney! Transplant recipients and their families had the opportunity to visit with each other and with Northwestern staff, and were able to learn more about Transplant Village and their mission to support the future of organ transplantation at Northwestern Medicine while connecting and supporting the transplant community.
