The International Xenotransplantation Association aims to serve its scientific community in providing a forum for the open exchange of knowledge and expertise in order to promote xenotransplantation as a safe, ethical and effective therapeutic modality.
Every two years, the IXA World Congress brings together clinicians, scientists, researchers, health professionals and students from all parts of the world in the field of Xenotransplantation. Through plenary lectures, oral presentations and rapid-fire sessions, the very latest advances in the field are introduced and discussed while developing collaborative connections.
The next Congress will be hosted in October 2023 in San Diego, California and is expected to attract over 450 delegates from 30 different countries, including 110 invited speakers and spanning four days. The Congress will be held in partnership with the International Pancreas and Islet Transplant Association and Cell Transplant and Regenerative Medicine Society.
We will be accepting bids from Europe and Asia, but if there are no suitable candidates we will consider Bids from other regions.
As the 2025 Congress will not be a joint endeavour, we anticipate about 250 delegates to attend in person.
