About Us

For both adult and pediatric patients, the faculty and staff of the Transplant Research and Education Center (TREC) design and conduct research and educational interventions about kidney disease, transplant, and living kidney donation. TREC is a prestigious collaboration between researchers at the Terasaki Research Institute and the University of California Los Angeles.


TREC’s mission is to inspire and educate people about kidney transplantation and living donation, design patient-centered outcomes for transplant, reduce racial disparities in transplant, increase transplant and living donation rates, and ensure transplant adherence; its vision is to solve the kidney donor shortage.
