Pancreas Committee

The Pancreas Transplantation Committee is charged with considering medical, scientific, and ethical aspects related to pancreas and pancreas islet organ procurement, distribution, and allocation. The committee will consider both the broad implications and the specific member situations relating to pancreas and pancreas islet issues and policies. The goal of the committee's work is to develop evidence-based policies aimed at reducing the burden of disease in pancreas candidates and recipients, increasing pancreas utilization, improving access to pancreas transplantation as appropriate, and improving the health outcomes of pancreas transplant recipients.
