    Welcome the Joint Congress of the International Pancreas and Islet Transplant Association (IPITA), the International Xenotransplantation Association (IXA), and the Cell Transplant and Regenerative Medicine Society (CTRMS).

    Driving from the success of their previous collaborations, the Joint Congress reaffirms the strong partnership of IPITA-IXA-CTRMS as leaders in transplantation and promises to provide an outstanding and innovative program.

    Renowned experts and opinion leaders from all over the world will present the latest data and advances in clinical and experimental transplant therapy. Specific sessions will be devoted to hot research in whole-organ pancreas transplantation, islet transplantation, stem cell therapy, xenotransplantation and transplant biology.

    The organization of the Joint Congress is supported by The Transplantation Society and locally hosted by Scripps Health.

    San Diego, America’s finest city, with its world-class restaurants, beautiful beaches and thriving neighborhoods will provide the perfect setting to inspire new discoveries and foster new connections.
