Managing the organ center

Roger Brown, Director of the UNOS Organ Center

Roger Brown joined the Organ Center as an organ placement specialist in 1995. He became assistant director in 2009 and director in 2015.

Brown provides expertise to all aspects of Organ Center oversight, assisting callers and placement specialists with questions or issues. He also maintains the Organ Center’s quality assurance efforts, and schedules the Organ Center’s round-the-clock staff.

One of the reasons Brown wanted to work at UNOS was because, when he was in college, his father had a heart transplant.

Working at UNOS, he said, provides a “unique opportunity to make a difference.”

Brown has been a leader in the transplant community since the beginning. A member of NATCO−The Organization for Transplant Professionals, he has served as faculty for NATCO’s course for new transplant coordinators and additionally as an invited lecturer for medical students at MCV.
