Professional Development


An essential component of the success of transplantation has been the infusion of sound research principles into the many aspects of organ procurement and clinical transplantation. NATCO supports and encourages ongoing research by its members through peer-to-peer interaction, and providing a forum to share knowledge through case studies and abstracts.

Guidelines to Assist in Research Projects

The Research Committee has developed many written processes and guidelines to help NATCO researchers with their research projects. These white papers are written by NATCO members, cover a wide range of research topics, and are available here.

Abstracts/Case Studies

The NATCO Research Committee invites and encourages NATCO members to share their research and experiences through abstracts and case studies.  Colleagues learn through abstracts, case studies and research grant presentations.  Presenting at a national meeting may lead to professional growth, confidence and marketability.  Top Abstracts and Case Studies receive special recognition.
