Dr. Ruth Sapir-Pichhadze: “Research Provides Hope to Transplant Patients”
In our film, Research Provides HOPE for Transplant Patients, that was produced in 2022 to 2023, patient partners of the Genome Canada Transplant Consortium, Teresa Atkinson and Mary Beaucage, share their transplant story from wait listing, through transplantation, rejection, graft failure, and re-transplantation. Their stories illustrates the struggles experienced by patients pre-transplant when seeking access to compatible donors, as well as challenges encountered post-transplant when experiencing rejection and/or adverse effects of therapies. The movie highlights patients’ hope that improved donor and recipient compatibility, made possible by precision medicine tools, will optimize experiences and outcomes following kidney transplantation.
