  • ​Incompatible Living Donor Kidney Program
    If a donor and recipient do not have matching blood or tissue types, the Incompatible Living Donor Kidney Program will increase the chance of making the donated kidney more compatible for a recipient.
  • Toronto’s Ex Vivo Organ Assessment and Repair
    The MOT program is a world leader in the assessment and repair of donor organs outside the body before transplantation. For more donor-recipient pairs for kidney information click here 
  • Kidney Paired Donation Program (KPD) Canadian Blood Services (CBS) is the national organization that keeps a Canada-wide list of incompatible transplant. We work with CBS through our KPD program, to find and match compatible donors and recipients anonymously across Canada. At the time of the transplant, a living donor's kidney is transplanted into a compatible recipient. In exchange the original recipient receives a kidney from a compatible donor in the registry. 
  • Transplant Infectious Diseases –The MOT team of world leading infectious disease experts work to prevent complications due to immune suppressing medications
