The Chronic Disease Research Group (CDRG) of the Minneapolis Medical Research Foundation (MMRF) has renewed its federal contract to operate the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients (SRTR).
Among its key functions, the SRTR provides statistical and analytic support to the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network (OPTN) for purposes including the formulation and evaluation of organ allocation in the United States.
SRTR also reports national transplant data and conducts research on solid-organ transplantation in the U.S. The renewal marks the second contract term for the operation of the SRTR to MMRF. The renewed contract contains a series of optional terms to extend through September 2020.
MMRF manages the SRTR under contract with the Health Resources and Services Administration of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
