Speakers, Lung Bioengineering Inc: 
Brandi Zofkie, MPH, MSBS-HDS, CPTC, CEVS
Sam Popa, HDS-C, CEVS
James Zhan, MD, PhD

Ex vivo lung perfusion is a major focus of Lung Bioengineering's work. Their goal is to increase the availabilty of lung transplants for end-stage lung disease, including PAH, by increasing the rate of utilization of donated lungs using advanced technologies. This work includes innovative projects that focus on assessing post-procurement function of otherwise unused lungs in a centralized, dedicated EVLP facility. Lung Bioengineering is currently conducting a clinical trial evaluating the safety of this approach to ex vivo lung perfusion. A successful trial may pave the way towards expanding the supply of available lungs.


Learning objectives for the webinar include:

  • Review the basics of ex vivo lung perfusion

  • Discuss clinical trial inclusion criteria

  • Observe live demonstration of EVLP procedure

Target Audience:
Procurement Professionals
(of interest to all Transplant Professionals)
