The American Transplant Congress, or ATC, is the annual joint meeting between the American Society of Transplant Surgeons (ASTS) and the American Society of Transplantation (AST). The aim of the congress is to promote the exchange of information and innovative technologies between the various professionals in the transplantation sector: surgeons, transplant surgeons, nurses, as well as all professionals in the transplantation field.
This year, the congress will take place between June 1 and 5, 2019 in Boston, USA. During the various conferences and presentations, many researchers will express themselves on their discoveries in the transplantation field. Among them, the scientists of the KTD-innov consortium, represented by Marc Raynaud, will present the progress of the project's French research in a presentation entitled: "Population-based modelling of prototypes and determinants of allograft function trajectories after kidney transplantation: Impact on patient monitoring and risk stratification". A presentation to follow via social networks on June 2 at 8:42 pm Paris time, thanks to the hashtag #ATC2019Boston and on @KTDinnov.

The 2019 Cutting Edge of Transplantation (CEoT) took place between the 21st and the 23rd of February 2019 in Phoenix, USA. This year’s theme was “No size fits all: uncovering the potential of personalized transplantation”.
Their goal for their meeting each year is to see the advancement of individualized care for transplant patients through new algorithms or practices, for the duration of their transplant journey.
That is why, Dr. Alexandre Loupy presented the work of the KTD-innov team with two oral presentations, presenting the advancement of the research and how it could help transplant patients in the future by minimizing rejection risks.
The CEoT is a meeting organized each year since 2013 by the American Society of Transplantation (AST). The organization was founded in 1982 and now counts 3 800 health professionals. Their goal is to promote both the field of transplantation and patient care through research, education, advocacy, and organ donations.
The Société Francophone de Transplantation (SFT) will host solid organ transplant specialists in Toulouse from December 4 to 7, 2018. Partners of the KTD-innov project are present at the event.
To elucidate the mechanisms of success or failure of a kidney transplant, KTD-innov collects, centralizes and analyses clinical, biological and immunological data from thousands of kidney transplant patients in France.
