Pulmonlogy Professional Community Webinar

Donor Lung Acceptance and Recipient-Donor Matching

Wednesday, 22 February, 2023  |  3:00 – 4:00 p.m. EST

This webinar will focus on donor lung acceptance, and a transplant surgeon, a pulmonologist, and a transplant coordinator will discuss their perspectives about the practical considerations of donor lung acceptance. The speakers will also discuss donor-recipient matching including factors such as donor quality, recipient severity of illness and clinical condition, and size. Finally, we will have a speaker give a brief overview on the potential role for AI/ML for organ allocation and donor-recipient matching in the future.
