TSANZ 39th Online Annual Scientific Meeting

14 - 16 March 2021

As a direct result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the 39th Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) of the Transplantation Society of Australia and New Zealand (TSANZ) will be hosted on-line. The TSANZ Scientific Program and Education Committee (SPEC) in conjunction with the TSANZ Council have designed a state-of-the-art virtual program convened by Dr Eu Ling Neo and A/Professor Philip Clayton. The ASM will feature internationally renowned speakers, complemented by local speakers.

There will also be opportunities for innovative networking and engagement, while ensuring the social aspects of the ASM are not overlooked, the details of which will be available closer to the ASM. As with previous years, the Postgraduate course (PGC), convened by A/Professor Chien-Li-Holmes-Liew and Dr Andrea Viecelli and Masterclass, convened by Dr Sanda Stankovic and Dr Tracey Ying will also be held virtually prior to the ASM.

We are confident that the virtual ASM and associated programs will reward attendees with a highly interactive, productive and fun event. All information can be found on the TSANZ website.
