Singapore will be hosting the 14th Congress of the Asian Society of Transplantation (CAST) in the year 2015. Although Asia comprises many of the most populous nations in the world, and thus likely with the largest burden of end stage organ failure, organ transplantation has not developed to its potential among its member countries. Many Asian nations are on the cusp of developing organ transplant programs, while many others have well developed programs. Transplantation in Asia is also unique in that its practice is influenced by varied cultural and religious influences in the region. This heterogeneity in transplant development and practice offers an exciting opportunity to address the gaps and approaches to meet the challenges in transplantation.

Join your peers at the 14th Congress of the Asian Society of Transplantation to garner invaluable insights, share experiences and network with the transplantation community. The congress will feature major themes like:

  • Kidney Transplantation
  • Liver Transplantation
  • Organ Donation and Ethics
  • Transplantation in Developing Countries
  • Other Solid Organ Transplantation

and feature key speakers that include:

Antibodies: The Next Enemy
by Carmen Lefaucheur, France
Current Status of Transplantation: A Global Perspective
by Philip O’Connell, Australia
Is Tolerance Achievable in Solid Organ Transplantation?
by Kathryn Wood, United Kingdom
Immunity and Infection: The Ying and Yang in Solid Organ Transplantation
by Atul Humar, Canada
Fifty Five Years in the Vineyard of Transplantation
