Baptist Medical Gets Grants to Study Kidney Transplants

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has awarded two five-year grants to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center worth more than $5 million to prospectively study the effects of a genetic variation in organ donors that appears to contribute to survival of kidneys after transplantation. Kidneys transplanted from deceased African-American donors fail more rapidly compared to kidneys transplanted from deceased European- American donors. Reasons for this are unknown. Thus, the grants for the study at Baptist. UNC Chapel Hill Medical Center is also participating in this study.
