This talk will comprise of three parts. Following a general introduction to the problem, we will present the results of a summer USRA project which performed a number of statistical analyses on the waiting lists for liver transplants in Canada. The second aspect will identify how the transplant waiting lists can be modeled as queues --- albeit complicated ones. The final aspect will focus on how key queueing principles can be used to infer qualitative consequences of select types of changes to current allocation policy. I hope to be able to present some sensitivity results as well.
