April 11, 2018 - April 14, 2018
Join us live for our 3 plenary sessions which will feature traditional content such as registry reports, the Presidential Address, the Lifetime Achievement Award Laudation of O. Howard Frazier, and our Awards Presentations, as well as research from the highest scoring abstracts submitted to the meeting. We also have some special invited talks planned for these sessions.
In the Plenary Session on Friday morning entitled “Moving Cardiothoracic Transplantation Forward,” the Keynote Speakers from Europe and North America will discuss “New Technologies to Advance Future Transplant Patient Care” and “Transplant Registries to Improve Results: It Relates to Research, Regulation, Reporting and Reimbursement.” As food for thought, Professor Simon Hoerstrup from the Zurich Institute for Regenerative Medicine will address the topic of “Tissue-Engineered Matrix to Generate Organs.” The Closing Plenary Session sums up our Nice Meeting’s basic and clinical science highlights and traditionally features the President’s Debate. In Nice, debate contestants Gregory Snell from Melbourne and Howard Eisen from Philadelphia battle about the “DCDo’s and DCDon’ts – We DCDo and We DCDon’t.” The two internationally highly regarded transplant physicians promise undoubtedly logical consistency and factual precision but also emotional appeal to the audience in their debate, certainly the program’s climax. Be sure to join us!
