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.

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.
