About Organ Preservation Alliance

The Organ Preservation Alliance is a non-profit supported by a large network of advisors and volunteers.

The Organ Preservation Alliance works with leaders across science agencies and other stakeholder groups to make preservation research a common priority, connecting them with leading experts in relevant fields and helping guide efforts to support preservation research.

As an example, in the last two years they connected Department of Defense officials to dozens of experts in organ preservation and cryopreservation, leading to six new funding programs for complex tissue preservation and banking that have funded dozens of labs.

Organ Preservation Alliance Mission

Organs and tissues are among the most precious resources that exist, saving and improving millions of lives through transplantation, regenerative medicine, and medical research. Supplies are severely limited, and for lifesaving transplant organs and many tissues, currently the only source is a person’s selfless decision to become a donor. We must make every one of these gifts count.

This makes the preservation of organs and tissues  the ability to keep them healthy outside of the body during transplantation, storage, transport, and other processes  a fundamental need in biomedicine. Advances in organ and tissue preservation can have a major impact on diverse areas of human health.

Building on recent advances in cryopreservation, organ perfusion, the study of animals that can enter ‘suspended animation’ in nature, and a variety of other platform technologies, the they are helping to bring about a world in which organs and tissues are as durable outside the body as they are inside it  with profound implications for science, medicine, and millions of patients around the globe.
