Abstract

In 2017, the American Society of Transplantation (AST) launched the Outstanding Questions in Transplantation Research forum to stimulate a community-wide discussion of how the field is evolving and to help identify areas where a better dialogue between clinicians and researchers could result in great advancements. Tolerance emerged as a topic of great interest to the AST community. This minireview provides an overview of clinical transplantation tolerance. Historical background followed by a review of the current status of attempts to establish tolerance in the clinic, highlighting the dynamic online discussion surrounding this important topic from the AST Transplantation Research forum, is provided.
