Jiri Fronek

ISUTx President

Marcelo Cantarovich

This is a significant milestone for both organizations, and we are confident that members of both Societies will be able to take advantage of the synergies resulting from increased cooperation and the strengthening of our transplantation network. The pioneering field of uterus transplantation offers many challenges to those involved, and, as with all TTS Sections, TTS is committed to providing ISUTx the support it needs to address these challenges, while gaining expertise and insight in a critical field which has been underrepresented in TTS.

We believe that this partnership will be mutually beneficial to both Societies, and we look forward to collaborating on various projects, meetings and initiatives. We eagerly anticipate working together to share knowledge and experiences to benefit the members of both Societies. Over the coming months, we will explore opportunities and elaborate plans to create synergies between our Societies.

The ISUTx membership fee includes TTS Full Membership. All ISUTx members immediatley gain access to TTS’ comprehensive educational material and knowledge base, particularly with regards to science and public policy. TTS members will be able to gain a wealth of knowledge from ISUTx members in this highly specialized field of uterus transplantation. Members of the ISUTx are invited to become TTS members. More information will be forthcoming.

This partnership is an exciting opportunity for all of us, and we look forward to our growing collaboration.
