We are pleased to launch this website to share selected lectures and oral presentations from the 17th Congress of the Middle East Society for Organ Transplantation (MESOT 2021) for the benefit of MESOT and TTS members.


Since its inception, the main goals of MESOT have been to promote and encourage education, research and cooperation in the field of organ transplantation between medical centers nationally and within the Middle East and also, to create a scientific forum for discussion of all problems related to the field of transplantation. 

Until today, MESOT has collaborated closely with other national and community-based institutions that share similar visions for transplantation. The society has made major strides working with government authorities and the mass media to raise public awareness about the benefits of transplantation. In addition, its members have organized numerous campaigns and conferences to promote organ donation.

As the affiliated society of The Transplantation Society, it has been a long goal of our society to create an educational and training platform that would benefit the members and trainee-fellows. Our sincere appreciation goes to all the 17th MESOT 2021 speakers who had contributed to the congress, to TTS President Dr. Marcelo Cantarovich and his TTS Technologies team, lead by Mr. Roberto Colarusso, for making this possible.
