    Dr. Joyce Trompeta is an Associate Professor who conducts outcomes research in the Department of Surgery in the School of Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). She completed her doctoral degree at UCSF, oversaw UCSF's Pediatric Kidney Transplant Program for ten years, and has expertise in adolescent growth and development. She is a member of the Declaration of Istanbul Custodian Group (DICG) on organ trafficking/transplant tourism. She has served on the Boards of the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network (OPTN) / United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) - Minority Affairs Committee (MAC), and the International Transplant Nurses Society (ITNS). She was on the Council Board of the International Society of Organ Donation & Procurement (ISODP) as US representative and President of ITNS. She has been nominated to serve on the Advisory Committee on Organ Transplantation (ACOT).

    As UCSF's International Pacific Rim's Surgical and Medical Liaison, Dr. Trompeta has developed outreach programs to four Hawaiian Islands promoting solid organ transplantation and donor awareness. She has developed outreach clinics in Hawaii for UCSF's Interstitial Lung Disease and Lung Transplantation Program and UCSF's Kidney/Pancreas Transplant Program. She oversees the Living Donor Kidney Transplant Program for pediatrics and Hawaii, performs all online donor health history screening, and orchestrates compatibility testing and medical donor work-ups. She remains clinically active, as well as lecturing professionally, nationally, and internationally and providing community education.

    Dr. Trompeta's program of research examines factors related to organ donation and health disparities, including organ donation practices, medical exclusion related to race and ethnicity, and reasons why donors are unwilling to donate. She developed the Organ Donation & Transplantation Knowledge Survey (ODTK), which is psychometrically valid for evaluating organ donation and transplantation knowledge. The results of her instrument were published in Transplantation Proceedings.

    Dr. Trompeta has created "The Kumamoto Model," a strategic plan to increase deceased organ donations in Kumamoto Prefecture in Japan. The Kumamoto Model (KM) mission is: to change the Japanese social climate regarding organ donation consent, to establish Japan's self-sufficiency for transplantation by increasing the availability of organs, to create an efficient organ procurement organization, and develop culturally tailored organ donation educational programs. The KM has received support from Governor Kabashima and "Kumamon" as the Ambassador of Organ Donation, with the designed slogan: Extend Life. Do the Honor. Be an Organ Donor.

    Dr. Trompeta is a Fulbright Scholar who was awarded a Fulbright U.S. Scholar Grant from the U.S. State Department through the Japan-United States Educational Commission. She will examine the organ donation and transplantation attitudes, beliefs, and knowledge among a population key to Japan’s future - Japanese university students, as well as faculty and healthcare providers who often are the ones who promote and request organ donation consent. She will conduct her research at Kumamoto University, the Japanese Red Cross Kumamoto Hospital, and various academic institutions throughout Japan. Findings from this proposed Fulbright research project will provide a better understanding of why organ donation rates are low in Japan and identify areas of education targeted to both young and older generations.
