Current Issue Highlights

Despite considerable attention, lung transplant outcomes have lagged behind those of most other organ types; the cause has been multifactorial, including pretransplant, perioperative, and long-term challenges. This month, we highlight numerous articles demonstrating advances in this field. These range from new insights in managing critically candidates for transplantation on ECMO to significant advances in the diagnosis of rejection and the biology of graft acceptance. New thoughts regarding the evolving metrics governing the practice are also advanced. As always, these articles are accompanied by thoughtful editorials, which place these advances in context. In all, this issue helps show a clearer path forward for this challenging but vital treatment. Cover image by Megan Llewellyn, Duke University Department of Surgery.

Human Cell Atlas Poised to Transform Our Understanding of Organs

This month’s installment of “The AJT Report” focuses on the recent launch of the Human Cell Atlas, a data-organizing project to help better understand the cells that comprise the human body. We also present a progress report on the United Network for Organ Sharing Innovation and Improvement Network Project, which recently entered its second phase.
