TTS Education Committee is working together with the editors of the journal Transplantation to provide a regular update on current literature publications in the field of basic science as well as clinical transplantation. Since the beginning of 2013, many important topics have been highlighted, including articles on tolerance, HLA antibodies, updates on immunosuppression, as well as other clinically relevant articles such as outcomes after using expanded criteria donors and prolonged cold ischaemic time. By reading these summaries, members should be able to get some information about recent work that was published in the field that might be of interest to them. As a new venture, the Education Committee wants to add a section on meeting highlights in the next six months—hopefully this will point out some cutting-edge topics presented at our congresses. The Education Committee is constantly working to improve education for our members in both the developed and developing world.
