2015 Cutting Edge of Transplantation - Immunity and Inflammation: Engineering Cell, Gene, and Drug Therapies

Looking back at the promise of gene therapy and regulatory cells, what have we learned from our past experiences and how does this inform us of where future development in transplantation will take us?

• Have the studies in gene therapy and regulatory cells delivered on their promise to transform transplantation?
• Are we on the threshold of a new era of development in cellular/tissue augmentation and organogenesis?
• How successful will transplant research be in repurposing drugs for other indications?

The AST’s CEOT 2015 meeting brought together leading clinicians and scientists from academia and industry, from within and outside the field of transplantation, to discuss the current and future challenges in transplantation with a focus on cell engineering, gene and drug therapies.
