Organ Donor Registration

At nPOD we work with the fifty-six federally designated Organ Procurement Organizations (OPOs) in the United States to receive pancreata from suitable organ donors to help our research into Type 1 diabetes. These pancreata are recovered in the same procedure and by the same team as organs that are being recovered for life-saving transplant. Because of the time sensitivity of these gifts, we can only accept organs from individuals who become organ donors.

Being registered to be an organ donor is the best route for organs to be donated to nPOD. We maintain a close relationship with our OPO partners and they are diligent in making us aware of donations from patients with type 1 diabetes.
