Clinical Transplantation Day 2019

We would like to draw your attention on the up-coming “Clinical Transplantation Day” 2019 edition that will be organised on November 29 2019, in Barcelona (Spain), organised by DESCARTES (a working group of ERA-EDTA) and endorsed by ESOT and EKITA.  

The title of the course is: 

"One size does not fit all
Specific challenges posed by individual donor, recipient and transplant characteristics"

Submit your abstract at: 

The deadline for the abstract submission is October 31, 2019.

The Course offers an exciting opportunity for DESCARTES/EKITA members: participants are encouraged to submit abstracts dealing with all aspects of organ transplantation.

The abstracts will be scored and ranked by the faculty panel. The authors of the three best scored abstracts will be asked to present their work in a free communication session to be held during the course (10 minutes for the presentation, 5 minutes for the discussion).

The presenters of the three best scored abstracts will be granted with free meeting registration, accommodation and travel as well as with a grant of 1000 €, 500 €, 250 € according to their ranking positions in the abstract evaluation.

The authors of the three best scored abstracts will be notified by November 10, 2019.
