General Information

Target Audience

The American Transplant Congress is designed for physicians, surgeons, scientists, nurses, organ procurement personnel and pharmacists who are interested in the clinical and research aspects of solid organ and tissue transplantation.  The meeting will provide the most current information in the field of transplant science. 


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 as well as socioeconomic, ethical and regulatory issues relevant to organ and tissue transplantation.  

Abstract submissions will be presented through peer reviewed oral and poster presentations.

The purpose of the meeting is to:

  • Review and evaluate the latest clinical and basic science advances in transplantation science, medicine and surgery; 
  • Investigate recent developments in transplant biology, immunology and organ preservation; 
  • Examine the broad but critical issues in transplantation, including social and policy issues.

Submitting an abstract to the American Transplant Congress means that it will be peer reviewed and may be accepted for either an oral or a poster presentation.  All accepted abstracts will be published in an online Supplement to The American Journal of Transplantation (AJT), the Joint Jounal of the American Society of Transplant Surgeons (ASTS) and American Society of Transplantation (AST).  You may submit as many abstracts as you wish.
