Research and Innovation
The Transplantation Laboratory participates in innovative
research and innovation relevant to the clinical services provided
to ensure that we continually improve our service provision in line
with the current clinical evidence base. Projects are closely
tailored to local clinical practice to ensure the most appropriate
services are provided for the patients.
The Transplantation Laboratory is part of a network, which is
cross-directorate and is known as the Manchester Institute of
Nephrology and Transplantation (MINT). MINT is a
multi-professional body of physicians, surgeons, nursing staff,
scientists, other professions allied to medicine and managers. Its
aim is to improve and develop the research and educational
activities of the Haemopoietic stem cell transplantation,
nephrology and dialysis services to achieve the best possible care
for transplant patients.
