University Hospitals Coventry & Warwickshire NHS Trust, U.K in collaboration with NHSBT, Birmingham and University of Warwick is delighted to welcome colleagues from the UK and around the globe to our Fifth International Transplant Conference, at Scarman House, University of Warwick on 9th Thursday and 10th Friday, May 2019.

Our principle aim is to bring people together who share a desire to understand and overcome the clinical, scientific and social barriers surrounding kidney transplantation in order to do more and better transplants. The invited speakers for this meeting are internationally renowned contributors from U.K, France, India, U.S.A and Canada.

The first day is on potential role of antibodies against other antigen systems, many of which are unknown; recurrent diseases;  big data sets , complex analysis and data modelling .

The second day is devoted to Black Asian Minority Communities in Organ Donation and Transplantation, done in collaboration with MOHAN Foundation, India. This will be a historic meeting as we are proposing to form a Consortium of Commonwealth Countries in Transplantation (CCCT) with the purpose of increasing donation amongst the BAME communities.   The conference will examine cultural barriers to organ donation, how to overcome the barriers, and to bring about sustainable and ethical organ transplantation for patients from all communities, globally.

The conference has been endorsed the TTS and BTS.
