All participants will have the opportunity to learn about the field of pediatric solid organ transplantation from experts in both basic science and clinical care while working within small interactive groups. There will be cross-organ plenaries and organ-specific breakout groups. Trainees will have the opportunity to present their research and receive feedback from the faculty in addition to having opportunities to network and discuss issues relevant to a career in pediatric solid organ transplantation.
Fellow/Trainee Travel Grant
