World Transplant Congress
July 26–31, 2014 San Francisco, California
The World Transplant Congress is designed to meet the educational needs of transplant physicians, surgeons, scientists, nurses, organ procurement personnel, pharmacists, and other healthcare professionals involved with 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 as well as socioeconomic, ethical and regulatory issues relevant to organ and tissue transplantation.
Scientific material will be presented through symposia, concurrent workshops, peer reviewed oral and poster presentations as well as small parallel workshops designed for in-depth exploration of both clinical and basic science topics.
The purpose of the meeting is to:
Review and evaluate the latest clinical and basic science advances in transplantation science, medicine and surgery;
Investigate recent developments in transplant biology, immunology and organ preservation;
Examine the broad but critical issues in transplantation, including social and policy issues.
