BTS Annual Congress 2018

Call for Papers

The British Transplantation Society looks forward to welcoming attendees to the Annual Congress in Brighton from Wednesday 14 to Friday 16 March 2018. The aim of the Congress is to unite clinicians, surgeons, laboratory scientists, nurses, transplant coordinators and all those interested in all aspects of organ transplantation.

We are putting together an exciting and stimulating programme which we hope will appeal to everyone, combining expert clinical updates with the latest in laboratory science. The three day meeting will attract around 550 delegates with an interest in all areas of transplantation.  The Congress is supported by a strong national and international faculty of speakers.

It is with this in mind that the Organising Committee seeks the submission of original, unpublished papers for consideration as oral (podium) or poster presentations.  Abstracts will be reviewed by the conference scientific committee and will be selected on the basis of set criteria.

The closing date for receipt of abstracts is
09:00 on Thursday 23 November
