UNOS strengthens leadership team

UNOS strengthens leadership team

Several new leaders will play integral roles in advancing UNOS’ mission to strengthen the organ donation and transplant system.

About us

Strengthening organ donation and transplant

Working together: Our nation’s organ donation and transplant system

United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) is the mission-driven non-profit serving as the nation’s transplant system under contract with the federal government. We lead the network of transplant hospitals, organ procurement organizations, and thousands of volunteers who are dedicated to honoring the gifts of life entrusted to us and to making lifesaving transplants possible for patients in need. Working together, we leverage data and advances in science and technology to continuously strengthen the system, increase the number of organs recovered and the number of transplants performed, and ensure patients across the nation have equitable access to transplant.
