Date: December 17, 2020

Time: 02:00PM - 03:00PM

You must be registered to participate!

After participating in this webinar, the learner will be able to:

  1. Recognize current methodologies and clinical indications for intragraft gene expression testing.
  2. Describe new opportunities afforded by emerging FFPE-based intragraft gene expression technologies.
  3. Understand the available data on the use of donor-derived cell-free DNA for solid organ transplants (kidney, pancreas, liver, heart, lung).
  4. Understand the limitations and future directions of available data on the use of donor-derived cell-free DNA for solid organ transplants.
  5. Explain the use of urine as a surrogate for kidney allograft biopsy.
  6. Discuss strategies to develop and validate robust biomolecular markers of kidney allograft status.
  7. Describe urinary cell biomolecular markers of human kidney allograft status.
