Looking for PPI representatives - design, reviewing, trial management and dissemination of results

Full description:

We propose using a machine to pump cold oxygen-enriched preservation fluid through the donated pancreas. This preservation technique has showed great promise in liver and kidney transplantation.

The effects of using this machine will be assessed by comparing measurable changes in the health of
included patients to similar patients who previously had the same transplant.

This research can potentially increase the number of patients who benefit from pancreas by improving its safety profile.

We are in the planning phase and we are looking for PPI representatives to be involved in design, reviewing our proposals, being involved in trial management and dissemination of updates and results in the future.
