Welcome Message

The International Pancreas and Islet Transplant Association (IPITA), the International Xenotransplantation Association (IXA), and the Cell Transplant and Regenerative Medicine Society (CTRMS) reaffirm their strong partnership as leaders in transplantation and promise to provide an outstanding and innovative program.

Leading experts and opinion leaders from all over the world will present the latest data and address important needs in clinical and experimental transplant therapy. Specific sessions will be devoted to hot research in whole-organ pancreas transplantation, islet transplantation, stem cell therapy, xenotransplantation and transplant biology.

The goals of the meeting from a scientific standpoint are:

  • to share current breakthroughs in the various fields of transplantation in regard to treating patients for various diseases.
  • To allow for international exchange of cutting-edge knowledge in the development of treatments of patients, using laboratory, and scientific research as platforms to move these treatments forward to the clinic.
  • To showcase the latest technologies, techniques, procedures and methods to treat patients for an array of diseases.
  • To also provide in-depth reports on recent advances, to address remaining challenges toward initiating clinical trials, to present a progress report of ongoing and planned clinical trials, and to expand the reach of the conference to junior scientists.

We are expecting close to 600 delegates from all over the world.

We look forward to welcoming YOU to San Diego!
