International Society of Vascularized Composite Allotransplantation Update

´╗┐Our Society was founded by pioneers in composite tissue allotransplantation: visionaries who recognized the future possibilities of the field and grouped people together to support each other and share in a common purpose. Continuing with the development that the field has attained in the last decade, we now have a new name: International Society of Vascularized Composite Allotransplantation (ISVCA). Although the name has changed, all aspects of our service and commitment remain the same. On behalf of all the members, the Council thanks the pioneers of our Society for all that they have done.

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to an International Workshop on VCA Histology on May 21, 2016 in Durham, North Carolina: "Grades and Stages of Rejection: Towards Clinical Correlation". The workshop is developed to encourage the exchange of scientific and clinical information and support the interchange of issues surrounding VCA histopathology. For more information, please visit the website here.

Following the successful 2015 Congress in Philadelphia, we would like to invite you to our 13th Congress of the ISVCA, to be held in Salzburg, Austria, October 26-27, 2017. The meeting will include plenary sessions and abstract presentations, providing an overview of current developments and new perspectives, and an opportunity for leaders in the field to share their most recent findings. We look forward to seeing you in Austria in 2017!
