Mission & Vision
Northwestern University Transplant Outcomes Research Collaborative (NUTORC) is a collaboration of forward-thinking clinicians and researchers from seemingly disparate disciplines to guide high impact, innovative, health data-driven transplant outcomes research. Our mission is to be a highly productive and nationally recognized research hub that conducts collaborative transplant outcomes research, establishes best transplant practices, guides transplant policy, increases transplantation and services and provides a fertile environment to mentor and educate early-career investigators.
Our vision is to become a nexus for health data-driven outcomes research that informs best transplant practices, guides policy, and increases transplantation.
