ESOT 2015 From the Heart of Europe to the World of Transplantation
September 14 – 16, 2015
September 13-16, 2015
ESOT 2015 is a congress that reflects the “global” dimension that transplantation has acquired over the years. Indeed, today transplantation ranges from cells, to isolated organs, multi-organs and even composite tissue allograft transplantation. It is performed on all continents, requires the collaboration of a high number of distinct specialist areas, and is still the focus of burgeoning clinical and basic research. But there is more to it than that!
We are facing exciting times where the idea of organ transplantation is being expanded to a broader concept of functional organ replacement, in which new technologies are likely to play a prominent role in the very near future. Realization of ideas such as organ regeneration, bioengineering or 3D-printing may be around the corner. The ambition of this Congress is to present the highlights of transplantation today and what we think they might be tomorrow!
