TTS 2016 • Hong Kong
In 2016, the 26th International Congress of the Transplantation Society will be held in Hong Kong from 18th to the 23rd of August. This meeting marks a major milestone for the Society as we will be celebrating our 50th Anniversary. The Society has recognized for some time that from a transplant perspective this is definitely the Asian century. In demonstrating TTS’ commitment to worldwide access to transplantation, we can think of no better place to hold this meeting than in one of the major gateways to Asia. We have brought together a high profile program committee with the aim of developing a broad program that will cover a diverse range of topics from the best cutting edge science to the latest controversies in ethics and public policy. Issues relevant to developing transplant programs and organ donation will be a highlight for many of you. Hong Kong is an exciting destination, which is regarded as the meeting place between East and West. The Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre is a wonderful venue for the meeting in the heart of Hong Kong Island and on the edge of Victoria Harbor. I look forward to meeting you in this wonderful city for what promises to be a stimulating gathering of great minds and new ideas.
