Addressing Rare Diseases Using Liver Transplantation

Welcome Message Back to WebApp

We are pleased to announce that our next annual meeting will be held May 1-2, 2025  in the Washington DC area. We look forward to welcoming you at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel & Conference Center, with Georgetown as our gracious host.

We appreciate your ongoing attendance at our Society’s meeting, which provides excellent educational content and opportunities for fellowship, community and networking. This year’s meeting will mark a number of changes including that our meeting has gone back to our usual Thursday/Friday cadence. Additionally, as an official Section of The Transplantation Society we have engaged them as a partner in organizing and supporting the continued growth of our meeting. 

We plan on welcoming leading experts and opinion leaders from all over the world to present their latest data and address important needs in clinical pediatric liver transplant and hosting sessions devoted to emerging research in the field.
