Transplant Infectious Disease Update

The full-day meeting included 14 captivating speakers from various continents, who lectured on 18 relevant topics divided in four exciting sessions: post-transplant infections – evaluating the risks; current challenges in regionally restricted infections; viral infections and vaccines; and exciting cases in transplant infectious diseases. Many of the updates focused on regionally-specific issues, including donor screening in the Tropics, the threat of emerging pathogens in South and Central America and endemic mycoses in the Southern Hemisphere.

With 66 registrants, the conference reached the TID educational goals and confirmed the international characteristic of TID receiving delegates from North America, Europe and South America. TID 2017 warmly welcomed Chile, Peru and Bolivia, countries participating for the first time in TID conference.

The two Exciting Case sessions showed an enthusiastic audience willing to acquire new knowledge, demonstrated by the great interaction between delegates and speakers.

Ending the day of activities, a wonderful dinner at the historic Opera House, accompanied by delicious Tannat wine and a magnificent tango show concluded the successful event.

Plans have begun for our next conference to be held in Madrid, just prior to TTS 2018. Please join us for another day of cutting edge topics in transplant infectious disease for the transplant clinician!
