Over the past 30 years, solid organ transplantation has advanced tremendously in many facets, with great strides made in organ selection and allocation to the monitoring and treatment of rejection. Despite these breakthroughs, organ preservation and chronic rejection rates have remained largely unchanged. Recent trends in translational research have begun to address this issue, and future directions for organ preservation will have far-reaching implications for the field of transplantation as a whole. In this chapter, we will highlight the current trends and innovations in preservation techniques, with a special focus on the role that nanotechnology is playing in this frontier.
