CCTI Presenters At 2023 American Transplant Congress (ATC)
The CCTI is always well represented at the American Transplant Congress (ATC) and this year in San Diego, CA, June 3-7 is no different!
The American Transplant Congress is the Joint Annual Meeting of the American Society of Transplant Surgeons (ASTS) and the American Society of Transplantation (AST). ATC provides a forum for exchange of new scientific and clinical information relevant to solid organ and tissue transplantation and brings together transplant physicians, scientists, nurses, organ procurement personnel, pharmacists, allied health professionals and other transplant professionals. The educational offerings provide attendees the opportunity to learn cutting-edge advances in research and exchange of ideas and practice in the field of solid organ and tissue transplantation.
Overview of the American Transplant Congress
- To provide a forum for exchange of new scientific and clinical information relevant to solid organ and tissue transplantation.
- To create an arena for the interchange of ideas regarding care and management of organ and tissue transplant recipients.
- To facilitate discussions of the socioeconomic, ethical, and regulatory issues related to solid organ and tissue transplantation.
- A variety of formats are planned that will encourage the exchange of new scientific and clinical information and support an interchange of opinions regarding care and management issues, as well as socioeconomic, ethical, and regulatory issues relevant to organ and tissue transplantation..
- Scientific material will be presented through symposia, oral abstracts, concurrent workshops, and poster presentations as well as small group sessions designed for in-depth exploration of both clinical and basic science topics
