TTS Executive Director Retiring

Our Executive Director, Jean-Pierre Mongeau, will be retiring at the end of this month after more than a decade with TTS. During his time with us, Jean-Pierre has overseen the many successes of our organization including the expansion and diversification of our membership, increasing our financial stake in our journal, (Transplantation), partnering with Jeremy Chapman in the creation of our open-access journal (Transplantation Direct), the development of a solid financial management strategy, and a multitude of other new initiatives, partnerships and collaborations with national, regional and sister organizations.

Most importantly, Jean-Pierre has kept us on track as the global leader in transplantation through his professionalism, hard work and relationship building.

Jean-Pierre is leaving us in good health to actively focus on his many hobbies and interests. He is an avid photographer, an experienced sailor, a motorcycle enthusiast, and a nature lover who loves combining his love of the outdoors with his fitness. Jean-Pierre is looking forward to this next chapter of his life with his wife (Susan), his children (Natalie and Phil), as well as his new dog (Weston), aptly named after one of his favorite photographers.

Jean-Pierre will be missed greatly by our entire organization, the IHQ staff, the many friends he has made and especially by the six current and past TTS Presidents he has worked closely with over his tenure (Gerhard Opelz, Francis Delmonico, Philip O’Connell, Nancy Ascher, Mehmet Haberal and Marcelo Cantarovich).

On behalf of the entire TTS Membership, we would like to sincerely thank Jean-Pierre for his years of service and extend a debt of gratitude for the many successes we enjoy that would have not been possible without his leadership.

You may send your well wishes to and we will forward them to Jean-Pierre.

DICG September Newsletter - September 2021

In this issue, we have decided to focus on recent news articles and publications with a spotlight on India. The articles were written by members of the DICG. India now performs one of largest number of transplants world-wide. We acknowledge the great strides our colleagues in India have taken to eradicate Organ Trafficking and Organ Comericialism in India as well as promote equity in transplantation. The focus on India is to better understand some of the challenges to ethical transplantation. Our colleagues and endorsing organizations are working hard to improve all aspects of transplantation in India. We encourage discussion and hope that this newsletter will be a catalyst for open discourse.
