Implications for infection and specific transplanted organs will be examined. The conference will reveal how the field of transplantation is embarking on an era of progress and transformation.
The following overarching objectives and more specific goals have been identified for this meeting. Having participated in this meeting, attendees will be able to:
- Discuss the current state of diagnostic testing in transplantation.
