The Organ Donation Research Consortium (ODRC) with additional support from the Association of Organ Procurement Organizations (AOPO) is pleased to offer up to $40,000 in funding to member(s) conducting basic, translational or clinical research specifically related to the organization’s mission to advance the science of organ donation.

The ODRC seeks to sponsor research efforts that will ultimately improve the numbers and quality of organs available for transplantation in the United States. Applications are encouraged that focus on expanding our knowledge of donor management research including but not limited to consent, organ donation physiology, clinical interventions to improve donor organs and recipient outcomes. Single-center projects, for example, should specifically address the potential to generalize their findings to multi-site settings.


One electronic copy of the application must be received by 5:00 p.m. Pacific Standard Time on July 1, 2016. Submit this electronic copy to the ODRC/AOPO grant to Roxane Cauwels at All submissions are to be in PDF format and compiled as one document.


The principal investigator must be either a current ODRC member or willing to join and maintain ODRC membership through the life of the grant. Applications are encouraged from junior and established investigators.


The application must be completed by the applicant (not the mentor) and typed with a size no smaller than 11 point font and single-spaced.
