International Symposium: Liver Transplantation and Liver Research in Birmingham

Medical School, University of Birmingham, Edgbaston campus, B152TT Birmingham, United Kingdom

We are delighted to inform you that the Birmingham Liver Units at the QEHB and BCH will be reaching an important milestone in the summer of 2017 by performing the 5000th Liver transplant. Coinciding with this it will be 30 years since the “Liver Patient Monitoring Area” – now the Centre for Liver Research in Birmingham was set up. To mark these two events, an International scientific symposium will take place on the 5th and 6th September 2017. We have put together an exciting programme looking at the past, present and future of Liver Disease and Liver Transplantation - including talks from the eminent pioneering liver transplant surgeon from Hôpital Paul Brousse, Paris – Professor Henri Bismuth and our own liver unit pioneers Professors McMaster, Kelly, Buckels and Elias, as well as several other internationally renowned speakers. We also have state of the art Normothermic Liver Perfusion and nurse/AHP workshops. Everyone is welcome to attend the meeting! Whether you have worked in the Liver Unit, have visited as an international fellow or would like just attend the symposium and join in our celebrations, the organising committee warmly invites you to register and to submit an abstract. Prizes will be awarded to the best poster in each category and all ex-fellows who submit an abstract and register for the meeting will have their name and affiliation listed in the symposium book on a dedicated fellows page.

Congress

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.
