Calling for new ISN-TTS Sister Transplant Centers
We are delighted to announce that the next deadline to apply to the ISN-TTS Sister Transplant Center Program is October 1, 2017.
This program is a joint partnership between ISN and TTS to help establish new kidney transplant centers and develop existing kidney transplant programs in developing countries. This initiative fosters partnerships between experienced transplant centers in the developed world (Supporting Centers or SC’s) and emerging new or developing transplant centers (Emerging Centers or EC’s) in the developing world. The Program offers step-wise funding from ISN-TTS to help facilitate vital multidisciplinary training and exchange of knowledge and expertise from the dedicated SC to EC.
