Transplantation Science Committee: Valuable Updates

The TTS Congress is here and we are excited to see a truly action-packed transplantation science programme. The Congress is preceded by a number of excellent meetings during the weekend, and we would like to highlight the Post-Graduate Course as well as the Global Transplant Laboratory meetings as providing excellent broad overviews of current science. The Post-Graduate Course comprises both clinical and basic science, with participants free to jump in between sessions. There is a world-class line-up of speakers, with the opportunity to discuss and network with clinicians and scientists who are experts in their fields. We would recommend this for attendees at any level – for some it will provide an introduction and for others, an update! The Global Transplant Laboratory meeting is a valuable update for those running studies in transplantation that rely heavily on immune monitoring and laboratory techniques.

The Transplantation Science Committee is proud to be sponsoring and co-organising the ESOT Basic Science Meeting in Rotterdam, from 11th-13th October 2018. The meeting will provide a highly focused, intensive look at cutting edge science in transplantation, from ex vivo repair and conditioning to the increasingly recognised role of innate immunity in transplant rejection.

Finally, we would urge you to look at the TTS Programme where you will see lots of fantastic transplantation science sessions. If you are a trainee member of the TTS, then please look out for the offerings from the Young Members Committee who will be organising orientation sessions at the Congress to help you decide which sessions to attend. The YMC will also be hosting their networking evening which is always a hit and an excellent way to meet new friends and future colleagues!
