WEBINAR - Prepping the kidney transplants of the future

Monday, 6th July, 2020 at 6:00pm - REGISTER HERE

Currently, outcome of kidney transplantation is generally good on the short term, and large numbers of patients benefit from the achievements and improvements of the past 70 years. However, two main issues hamper the success of human-to-human kidney transplantation as treatment of kidney failure: 

- Scarcity of human organs
- Donor-recipient incompatibility 

During this webinar, the group of panelists will build on the expertise being gained in the field of xenotransplantation and discuss the need and promises of such futuristic transplantations. The panelists will debate, very practically, patient selection strategies and endpoints for xenotransplantation.

Let’s get prepped for the future!

Stefan Schneeberger, Innsbruck, Austria 
 

Panellists:
