Research in the field of transplantation at the Medical University of Vienna is multi-disciplinary, spanning the entire spectrum of experimental, translational and clinical studies. Bench-to-bedside – and back again – is a cardinal feature and a long-standing reality of transplantation research. Numerous research groups in all disciplines closely linked to the high volume clinical transplant programs provide an excellent environment for translating scientific findings into therapeutic interventions for patients.
