National Congress 2013


The 2013 National Donation and Transplantation Congress was held on September 3rd / 4th at the University of Warwick. The meeting was widely regarded as our most successful yet, and for the first time included delegates from recipient care, organ retrieval and transplantation.

The scientific content of the meeting was organised around the four domains of our new strategy for organ donation and transplantation (Taking Organ Transplantation to 2020), and also included a series of updates and masterclasses around both clinical and societal aspects of donation and transplantation. Particular thanks go to all of those who submitted free papers for presentation at the Congress, and congratulations to the following prize winners:
