18th Congress of the European Society for Organ Transplantation

Centre de Convencions Internacional de Barcelona, Pl. de Willy Brandt, 11-14, 08019 Barcelona, Spain

We would like to invite you to a new level of medical meetings in transplantation at the BigBangBarcelona conference. Transplantation has emerged from the decades of an early experimental procedure to an established first line therapy for organ failure. While mechanistic devices or fully artificial organs may be available in many decades from now, the fate of the patients suffering from organ failure today and in the next years, will depend on the progress we will achieve with transplantation. The discrepancy between the high demand and the shortage in organs available remains a challenge. Amongst the many obstacles highlighted at the congress, progress in transplantation with organs from living donors but also advancements in normothermic perfusion and other seminal technologies will be addressed. Novel drugs, protocols for immunomod- ulation and tolerance but also surrogate endpoints for clinical trials in order to enhance the drug develop- ment remain critically important topics in the field.
