Abstract

From June 11–15, 2016 the American Transplant Congress, the joint meeting of the American Society of Transplantation and the American Society of Transplant Surgeons, held its annual meeting in Boston, MA. The meeting, attended by 5200 registrants, included pre-meeting conferences, focused topic sessions, and hundreds of high-quality presentations from the transplant field. This meeting report highlights key findings from specific basic science, translational, and clinical research presentations deemed to have notable impact in thematic areas. In particular, there were a number of transformative studies indicating important advances in the understanding of alloimmunity, chronic rejection, tolerance, and organ-specific outcomes. Many of these results are discussed in the context of the published literature to showcase rapid advances in the transplant field.
