The German Society of Tissue Transplantation (DGFG – Deutsche Gesellschaft für Gewebetransplantation), was founded in 2007 as a non-profit company. The DGFG organizes tissue donation, operates and works with tissue banks, and provide tissue for transplantation.

Since 2007 the DGFG has been supported by the Hanover Medical School, the University Hospital of Leipzig, and the University Hospital Carl Gustav Carus Dresden. In 2015, the University Medical Department Rostock joined as another partner.

The DGFG has developed a tissue network of German hospitals and tissue banks, operating exclusively in the field of non-commercial tissue donation. In Germany we provide 120 transplant programs for corneas, 35 clinics for heart valves and blood vessels, and about 40 facilities for amniotic preparation. The DGFG has more than fifteen years of experience in the organization of tissue donation and the exchange of tissue transplants.
