A heart transplant is an operation in which a diseased, failing heart is replaced with a healthier donor heart. Heart transplant is a treatment that's usually reserved for people whose condition hasn't improved enough with medications or other surgeries. While a heart transplant is a major operation, your chance of survival is good with appropriate follow-up care. Heart transplants are performed when other treatments for heart problems haven't worked, leading to heart failure.

Physician-scientists in the Heart Transplant Research Program within the Mayo Clinic Transplant Research Center focus their research efforts on improving morbidity and mortality associated with challenges in heart transplantation. These challenges include developing novel immunosuppression strategies, managing immunosuppressive medications after transplantation to minimize adverse effects and enhance efficacy, and identifying biomarkers that help predict clinical outcomes for patients. Specifically, novel areas of research include exploring ways to personalize treatments for patients by using biomarkers and genetics to individualize therapy. The Heart Transplant Research Program also continues to build on well-established research to investigate the major causes of graft failure and develop therapeutic approaches to prolong graft survival.
