The Multi Organ Transplant (MOT) Program was designated as a priority program within the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Toronto in July of 1989. The program brought together, into one organizational structure, clinical and academic transplant programs in kidney, heart, lung and liver, which had developed independently over many years at 4 hospital sites: The Toronto General Hospital; The Toronto Western Hospital; St. Michael’s Hospital and the Hospital for Sick Children. In 1994, Dr. G. Levy was appointed as the Director, a position he continues to hold. Click here to see VIDEO.
The overall mission of the MOT Program is to build a centre of the highest clinical and academic quality for patient care, research and education in the field of immunology, pathology and transplantation. The program was founded on a multidisciplinary approach among team members who support continuous quality improvement supported on an academic platform of research and education.
The MOT Program is internationally renowned for its clinical, and academic excellence and is poised to become the “World’s foremost Transplantation Program”. It has attracted and developed some of the world’s best leaders in Immunology and Transplantation who work together in a highly productive and collaborative manner.
