Title of Collaborative Activity:

National Academies of Sciences Issues in Organ Donor Intervention Research Study

Description of Collaborative Activity:

The Committee on Issues in Organ Donor Intervention Research is examining the ethical, policy, regulatory, and operational issues relevant to the conduct of research involving deceased organ donors (for purposes of the study, the concept excludes interventional research preceding declaration of death by neurologic or cardiopulmonary criteria among potential organ donors). The committee will examine the gaps, barriers, and opportunities for clinical research involving deceased donors that aims to increase the quality and quantity of donated organs available for transplantation, with particular attention to interventions administered to the donor and thus potentially affecting all of the donor's organs. Specifically, the report will delineate the issues pertinent to organ donor intervention research and make recommendations to maximize public and professional trust in the organ donation process and ethical conduct of organ donor intervention research.
