We would like to extend a warm invitation from the Transplant Infectious Diseases section to attend the 11th International Transplant Infectious Diseases Conference, "Cutting Edge Topics in Transplant Infectious Disease for the Transplant Clinician”, to be held in picturesque Colonial Montevideo, Uruguay, on Saturday, September 2, 2017 one day prior to the XXIV Congreso Latinoamericano y del Caribe de Trasplante (STALYC 2017).
The full day meeting will include lectures by 13 physician experts from various continents, covering relevant topics such as donor management in developing countries, MDR spread and consequences in organ donor selection, polyomaviruses, Chagas disease, infection biomarkers in transplant recipients, strongyloidiasis, vaccination of pediatric transplant recipients, and emerging parasitic infections in transplantation.
The conference is aimed primarily at transplant clinicians with the expertise in infections and is intended to promote research and education in the prevention, diagnosis, and management of the infectious disease problems of the transplant recipient. Challenging cases will be discussed in special sessions led by a panel of experienced transplant ID specialists.
Our annual TID conference always provides an excellent opportunity for colleagues to meet and for strangers to become friends. At the end of the day, the conference dinner reflects the spirit of friendship and cordiality that has always characterized our meetings.
We look forward to a wonderful conference and seeing you in Montevideo!
