This issue is full of infection, mostly viruses of course. SARS-CoV-2 vaccines and breakthrough disease, but also Parainfluenza, metapneumovirus, Hepatitis C, Norovirus and the RNA Virome are explored. A Systematic Review examines the way we report infection in clinical trials. Lung transplanters will find a series of useful papers: from trends in outcome, fungal prophylaxis, ex-vivo perfusion and CLAD. Risk factors for GVHD after Liver transplantation are presented and some thoughtful papers examine costs of retrieval. There is much for your holiday reading.
This will be the first WIT event related to the careers of women specifically involved in donation. Presentations will highlight their career trajectories (e.g., how they became interested in the field, how it fits into their larger view of their work and essential issues that they think are important.)
This virtual event will include an overview of the Women in Transplantation initiative and several short presentations from Women in Donation (personal stories about experiences, challenges, opportunities), followed by open discussion and Q and A.
The TTS-ILTS Paired Transplant Centers Program is a collaboration between The Transplantation Society (TTS) and the International Liver Transplantation Society (ILTS) supporting new liver transplant programs in emerging economies.
