Cutting Edge of Transplantation 2016

The shortfall between the demand and availability of organs for transplantation has never been greater. Tackling this mismatch requires a multifaceted approach, which addresses issues at all levels. The Cutting Edge of Transplantation 2016 focused on how the effects of redistricting, the possibility of incentives, and how the use of marginal donors can and will impact the donor organ shortage problem.

The 2016 meeting included a dedicated heart track, “Effects of Redistricting on Heart Transplantation,” focused on topics of great importance to the heart transplant community.

This was a high-energy, interactive meeting exploring how we, as a community involved in transplantation, will move the field forward. We hope to see you next year at CEOT 2017.
