Description & Objectives:

The 2nd International Transplantation Science (ITS) meeting, jointly organised by the American Society of Transplantation (AST), The Transplantation Society (TTS) and the European Society of Transplantation (ESOT), will be held between 15th and 18th of May 2022 in Berlin, Germany.

The ITS meeting 2022 is intended to provide in-depth, cutting-edge talks from leading experts addressing challenges that arise from connecting basic fundamental to translational science in transplantation. We will dedicate sessions to discussions on pathologic antibodies in transplantation, mechanisms of tolerance, and both new trends in transplant therapeutics and organ regeneration that hold diagnostic and therapeutic promise. Other sessions will tackle topics of biomarkers, biobanks and Big Data in transplantation. Moreover, we include selected subjects ranging from innate immunity to metabolomics in transplantation. Our educational pre-meeting will focus on the breakthrough and challenges in Single Cell Multimodal Omics. Programme will also embrace round table discussions which will focus on various topics such as role of the scientists or discussions with transplant patients.

This meeting will not only serve as an international platform for scientific discussions on the latest ground-breaking discoveries in the field but will also provide an excellent opportunity to present your own work to the scientific community. We hope this will allow for the exchange of new ideas and establishment of collaborative work between advanced transplant experts, young professionals and early stage researchers.

On behalf of AST, TTS and ESOT we invite you to join us in Berlin and to actively contribute to an exciting and stimulating scientific meeting that will inspire and challenge you with updates on recent research and developments in the field of transplantation!
