Coronanavirus News / Updates

New! The Transplantation Society has launched a new Coronavirus (COVID-19) Dashboard to monitor the progression and news from around the world.
Our Transplant Infectious Disease Section (TID) has prepared an update and guidance on the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCov) for transplant ID clinicians.

TTS 2020 Official Congress

Abstract Deadline extended to April 6, 2020

As we are all aware, the current outbreak of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has been the focus of the medical community throughout the world. This has prevented many of our colleagues from preparing and submitting abstracts for our congress in September. We have therefore decided to extend the abstract submission deadline to April 6.

We are also aware that some individuals are concerned about committing to traveling to the congress as it is still six months away. We have therefore decided to extend the abstract presenter registration deadline to June 15, at which point much more will be known about the containment for the coronavirus disease.

Young Members' Scientific Awards

In order to help young members offset expenses to attend our Congress in Seoul, TTS 2020 will be offering Young Investigator Awards and International Transplantation Science Mentee-Mentor Awards. Award recipients will be selected on scientific merits (abstract submission deadline for young investigators is March 10 April 6 at 23:59 EST).
To be eligible for the Young Investigator Awards, you need to apply by March 23, 2020 April 7, 2020, submit an abstract to the Congress, be a trainee (within 2 years of completion of their training and/or fellowship) and be a member of TTS.
TTS in collaboration with National and International Societies acknowledges the contribution of basic science to the field of transplantation by offering Mentee-Mentor awards.
