On November 21, 2013, President Obama signed the new HIV Organ Policy Equity (HOPE) Act based on ERGOT’s high impact research and media attention.

On March 30, 2016, Johns Hopkins University performed the first HIV-to-HIV transplant ion the United States under the leadership of Drs. Dorry Segev and Christine Durand.

With over 120,000 people currently waiting for a life-saving organ transplant, we continue to lead HOPE in Action, a multi-site NIH-funded trial led by transplant infectious disease physician, Dr. Christine Durand.
