Publications Committee


The committee’s purpose is to assure that important topics related to the transplantation of children are brought to the attention of the transplant community and beyond through appropriate publication tools. The committee does this through committee-driven writing projects and the quarterly newsletter. We assist especially younger IPTA members in developing their writing skills and scientific output through an individual mentoring program.

About Mentoring Program

IPTA promotes involvement of early career researchers who work in places where publication is not considered a priority in the scientific community. For this purpose, a mentoring program has been developed. Hereby, early career researchers can access research projects improving their publication yield.
