Shiraz Transplant Research Center (STRC) began its activities in 2001 with the aim of research in different fields of transplantation, especially because:

  1. Shiraz University of Medical Sciences is one of the active centers of transplantation in kidney.
  2. Liver transplantation is exclusively done in Shiraz.
  3. There is an active team of bone marrow transplantation in hematology department.
  4. Corneal transplant is done in ophthalmology department.


Objectives STRC was developed to carry out the following goals:

  1. Carry out research in different aspects of transplantation , to apply new tests for transplanted patients to create better life quality for them.
  2. Gathering and registering exact and detail information about all of our transplanted patients, to have complete data from these patients such as viral markers and so on.
  3. Training manpower for carrying out research and applying activities in the field of transplantation
