AI-Enhanced Kidney Transplant Research Receives $2.8M Grant

CMIL has secured a $2.8 million grant for a five-year project to advance kidney transplants using artificial intelligence (AI). The goal is to create AI models that predict and optimize kidney transplant outcomes, potentially reducing rejections.

AI will streamline the analysis of kidney tissue samples and patient data, enabling more informed decision-making for physicians. With the perpetual kidney shortage, our research is pivotal.

We work alongside researchers from the UF departments of surgery, medicine, and health outcomes & biomedical informatics as well as the University of California, Davis; the University of California, San Francisco; Johns Hopkins University; and the University of Coimbra in Portugal, generously funded by the National Institutes of Health.
