Research in medicine leads to better and more enjoyable lives for patients and their families. Our researchers are leading the way in new discoveries and evidence-based medicine in transplantation. They are involved in collaborative studies with other world-renowned transplant programs and organizations.

Our Research 

Our research and focus on improving patient outcomes has led to:

  • Discovering a cure for the hepatitis C virus (HCV) as a leading research site 
  • Transplanting the nation's first hepatitis C positive liver into a hepatitis C negative patient
  • Performing the Intermountain West's first combined heart-liver transplant in an adult
