Sensitization in Transplantation: Assessment of Risk (STAR)
One of the key conclusions from the first STAR meeting was that a major gap in risk stratification for organ transplantation is (lack of) knowledge, and more importantly, tools, to detect potential of immune-memory responses prior to transplantation. Additionally, risk stratification, and the immunobiology that leads to generation of de-novo donor specific antibody production is poorly understood. The half day STAR 2019 meeting is designed to present current knowledge and have open discussions that will lead to the second STAR publication, with further recommendations for risk stratification.
The STAR 2019 Meeting will take place on Thursday, February 21st, directly before the start of CEoT 2019. During the CEoT 2019 registration process, you will have the opportunity to indicate if you plan to attend the STAR 2019 Meeting. If you would like to only attend the STAR Meeting and do not plan to attend CEoT, please email Sarah Rowland, srowland@myAST.org for further information on how to register.
