Division Overview—Hume-Lee Transplant Center

The Hume-Lee Transplant Center plaque

Today, kidney, liver and pancreatic transplants and treatment options have become routine at the Hume-Lee Transplant Center.

Our comprehensive transplant programs, research and fellowship programs are just a few of the reasons we are proud to say that one of the top solid organ abdominal transplant programs in the world is at VCU Medical Center.

The History of the Hume-Lee Transplant Center

The focus of our research initiatives are patient-centered with emphasis in the areas of liver transplantation and disease, kidney transplantation and disease, pancreas transplantation and disease, cell transplant and animal model studies.

As a result of the research performed at the Hume-Lee Transplant Center, our researchers have authored or collaborated on more than 400 peer-reviewed abstracts and articles published in the leading professional journals. A representation of these publications can be viewed by visiting the PubMed links for each of our researchers. Learn more

Fellowship training in transplantation began at VCU in 1969, with more than 300 fellows receiving their training here in kidney and liver transplantation. The kidney transplant fellowship has been accredited continuously by ASTS since 1981 and the liver transplant fellowship since 1996. Learn more about our fellowship program.
