Conference Announcements



Mon, 12 Nov 2018 – Tue, 13 Nov 2018

All participants will have the opportunity to learn about the field of pediatric solid organ transplantation from experts in both basic science and clinical care while working within small interactive groups. There will be cross-organ plenaries and organ-specific breakout groups. Trainees will have the opportunity to present their research and receive feedback from the faculty in addition to having opportunities to network and discuss issues relevant to a career in pediatric solid organ transplantation.


The focus of this symposium is aimed at clinical and research fellows in pediatric solid organ transplantation, as well as residents, and other allied health professional or non-physician trainees who are planning a career in pediatric transplantation.

The symposium will also provide state of the art information to established physicians, surgeons and allied health professionals who participate in the care of children before or after solid organ transplantation. In this case, a registration fee of $150/ person applies. Maximum capacity for established practitioners will be 50.



Fellow / trainee attendees will be selected based on the score of their abstract submission following a blind review lead by IPTA’s Education Committee. Abstracts previously or currently submitted to or planned for submission to other national or international meetings that have not been published in manuscript form are welcome.

All other attendees can register for the educational forum for the registration fee of $150 / person. Space is limited and will be allocated on a first-come, first-serve basis. Full payment must be received in order to guarantee a spot. Further details about how to register will be available in February 2018.
