History & Mission


On May 27, 1999, the Council of The Transplantation Society, meeting in Rome, voted unanimously to establish the Section on Infectious Disease within The Transplantation Society. The Transplant Infectious Disease Section of the TTS held their first meeting in 2004 in Vienna, Austria.   The Section continues to hold meetings annually in advance of other international transplant and infectious disease meetings.


The mission of the Transplant Infectious Disease Section is to promote research and education in the prevention, diagnosis, clinical consequences, and management of the infectious disease problems of the transplant recipient.
