Issues in Organ Donor Intervention Research
The Committee on Issues in Organ Donor Intervention Research is examining the ethical, policy, regulatory, and operational
issues relevant to the conduct of research involving deceased organ donors (for purposes of the study, the concept excludes
interventional research preceding declaration of death by neurologic or cardiopulmonary criteria among potential organ
donors). The committee will examine the gaps, barriers, and opportunities for clinical research involving deceased donors that
aims to increase the quality and quantity of donated organs available for transplantation, with particular attention to
interventions administered to the donor and thus potentially affecting all of the donor's organs. Specifically, the report will
delineate the issues pertinent to organ donor intervention research and make recommendations to maximize public and
professional trust in the organ donation process and ethical conduct of organ donor intervention research.
As of March 2016, the Health and Medicine Division continues the consensus studies and convening activities previously undertaken by the Institute of Medicine (IOM).
