While technological advances have made detection of HLA antibodies more sensitive, the optimal method of assessment of circulating HLA antibodies in lung transplant candidates, and their impact on both pre and post transplant outcomes remains unclear. Our research aims to assess the characteristics of circulating HLA antibodies that best predict clinically relevant outcomes, and to define the correlation between circulating HLA antibodies detected by various screening methods in the candidate population and likelihood of transplantation, incidence of both cellular and antibody mediated rejection, and mortality.
Students would have the chance to experience many aspects of clinical research, including study design, consent process, sample collection, database design and management, data analysis, and abstract/manuscript development in the context of an established and collaborative study team. Past student participation has led to both abstract and manuscript acceptance with authorship.
