The AST is an organization dedicated to advancing the field of transplantation by providing research grants and education to researchers and transplant professionals. This becomes more and more crucial as funding continues to be cut for medical research. We also focus on patient advocacy and education, with the goal of improving overall care for transplant patients. We are a professional organization with over 3,500 members. We also provide a public-facing initiative called Power2Save, which aims to raise awareness for organ rejection.
