Duke Lung Transplant Symposium
August 25 – 26, 2017
For 25 years, Duke’s lung transplant program has been one of the largest and most successful in the world. With over 1700 lung transplants performed, our team understands all aspects of lung transplant, from process to planning, organization and the incorporation of the multidisciplinary components that are key to good outcomes. Our team is experienced in lung transplant across the age and disease spectrum, as well as multiorgan transplant. We are also leaders in transplant research, having contributed to much of the pivotal knowledge that guides current practices and as the recipients of the first lung-focused $13 million NIH Clinical Trials in Organ Transplantation (CTOT) grant which will lead to advances in future care. This symposium is designed to help you understand how to optimize lung transplant candidate selection as well as perioperative and long-term management of lung transplant recipients. This is a unique opportunity to broaden your transplant expertise and learn the pearls and pitfalls of lung transplant from our established team of experts.
