Overview of the American Transplant Congress

  • To provide a forum for exchange of new scientific and clinical information relevant to solid organ and tissue transplantation.

  • To facilitate discussions of the socioeconomic, ethical and regulatory issues related to solid organ and tissue transplantation.

A variety of formats are planned that will encourage the exchange of new scientific and clinical information and support an interchange of opinions regarding care and management issues, as well as socioeconomic, ethical, and regulatory issues relevant to organ and tissue transplantation.

Scientific material will be presented through symposia, oral abstracts, concurrent workshops, and poster presentations as well as small group sessions designed for in-depth exploration of both clinical and basic science topics

Who Should Attend

The American Transplant Congress is designed for physicians, surgeons, scientists, nurses, organ procurement personnel, pharmacists and other transplant professionals  who are interested in the clinical and research aspects of solid organ and tissue transplantation.  The meeting will provide the most current information in the field of transplant science.
