  • Explore Transplant Ontario
    School of Medicine
    • "Explore Transplant (ET) helps patients with kidney failure, families, friends, living donors, and providers to understand all of the available transplant options in order to make the most informed health care decisions. Now, ET is extending its mission to Ontario, Canada where there are more than 17,000 patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD). ET Ontario was designed specifically for the Ontario transplant and living donation community and provides video and print education about kidney transplant and living donation for kidney transplant patients, their caregivers, potential living donors, and the public.

  • Epilepsy Bioinformatics Study for Antiepileptogenic Therapy (EpiBioS4Rx)
    School of Medicine
    • There are currently no treatments to prevent epilepsy, nor are there cost effective ways to identify or prove such treatments in patients. This international multicenter NIH funded program will study animals and patients with traumatic brain injury to identify biomarkers of posttraumatic epilepsy and test potential antiepileptogenic agents.

  • Joint Health Status Monitoring
    School of Medicine
    • We are developing a novel externally wearable device to discriminate healthy from problematic joints in the early stage of degradation, with applications to natural and artificial joints, and soft tissues. The effort requires very close collaboration among surgeons and engineers. The research has been funded by NIAMS and is being carried out in partnership with the Quantum Computing Department at the University of Waterloo in Canada.
  • Transplant Research and Education Center (TREC)
    School of Medicine
    • The UCLA Transplant Research and Education Center (TREC) examines how best to expand access to transplant, reduce racial disparities, ensure informed decision-making, promote paired donation and increase living donation rates.
