About AST

Through the efforts of dedicated committee members, the AST has continued to build upon the mission of promoting scientific initiatives, fostering professional education, and improving patient care. AST committees play an important part in furthering these goals.

All AST committees, advisory councils, and communities of practice are listed below. These groups are created by resolution of the AST Board of Directors. Members of committees and advisory councils are appointed by the AST President-Elect. Communities of practice are open to anyone in the field of transplantation and participation is encouraged.

AST Taskforces and Representation

Per AST policy, all members of the board, committees, advisory councils, COP executive committees, and other individuals whom the board has delegated signficant decision making authority must disclose all relationships or financial interests with companies and professional societies that provide services for transplantation research of the care of transplant patients. These disclosures are collected annually and reviewed and updated at the beginning of each board or committee meeting. All relationships are also reported on the AST website.
