Financial donations to the RPA Hospital Transplant Institute (RPATI) support numerous research projects to help understand liver and kidney disease.
It's a wonderful, life-changing cause to dedicate fundraising efforts towards.
Many of the donations are directed to "seed funding", which allows researchers to perform preliminary work and obtain data to demonstrate the value and feasibility of a project. This is why RPATI has been so successful - many of our initially-funded projects have subsequently received more substantial funding including project grants.
Our ongoing transplant research, improving community education, better understanding kidney and liver disease and the care of patients could not be possible without the generosity of our supporters. RPATI would like to thank them enormously.
