EPITA Call for Nominations 2024

December 14, 2023 | General | Islets | Pancreas

EPITA – The European Pancreas and Islet Transplant Association- would like to announce a call for nominations for two new Board members.

All ESOT/EPITA affiliates are welcome to send nominations for these positions. You may nominate yourself or a colleague. The new EPITA Board Members will hold office for 4 years (2024-2028).

In addition, considering the specialties currently represented on the Board, EPITA encourages applications from professionals with a focus on stem cells for β cell replacement as well as transplant surgeons. The expectation is that successful candidates will become actively involved in the Association by attending Board meetings, educational events (courses), and the annual meetings, e.g., the EPITA Symposium, the EPITA Specialty Update Symposium at the ESOT Congress. Please note that Board members act as volunteers and thus serve without compensation.

The EPITA Board is strongly committed to principles of diversity and inclusion and promotes balance in geographic and professional representation. Members of traditionally underrepresented groups are particularly encouraged to apply.


EPITA is the ESOT Section representing European professionals working in the field of pancreas transplantation, Islet of Langerhans transplantation or any other form of beta cell replacement. The mission of EPITA is to exchange scientific information and views with the primary aim of providing the best care to patients requiring transplantation as a treatment for diabetes.

  • A statement on your commitment to the Section and how you plan to contribute to its activities and mission. The statement shall be max. 300 words long.
