The educational design of this activity addresses the needs of healthcare professionals (physicians, surgeons, pharmacists, nurses, and others) and researchers working in the field of transplantation.
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.
- Explain transplant access and care delivery challenges.
- Review emerging approaches towards immunosuppression.
- Identify outcome outpoints.
Statement of Need/Program Overview
CEoT 2021 will be an exploration of exciting recent developments in immunosuppression and care delivery. We will set the stage by considering gaps and unmet needs and then pivot quickly into innovations in drug development, immune monitoring, care delivery and emerging technologies that may render classic approaches toward immunosuppression obsolete. 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.
