Research Funding

The strength of the Emory Transplant Center can be seen in its continued growth in external funding. In 2004, ETC received just over $8 million in funding. In 2010, ETC received over $29 million in funding. That is an increase of more than 250% in just seven years.

Although the ETC saw a slight decrease in NIH funding in 2011, the Center maintained growth in other federal sources, e.g. Department of Defense and Food and Drug Administration. In addition, the ETC has been the fortunate recipient of significant private and foundation funding. Since its inception, the ETC has received more than $48,350,000 in gifts.
