About SPLIT / 24th Annual SPLIT Meeting
Why Did SPLIT Join TTS as an Official Section?
Since its inception in 1995, SPLIT steadily grew into an established collaborative, integrated infrastructure and community with synergistic platforms in research, education, patient advocacy, mentorship, quality improvement and clinical care. Over the years, SPLIT’s primary goal of improving outcomes for children who have undergone liver transplantation were powered via pharmaceutical (SPLIT 1.0), United States National Institutes of Health Grant (SPLIT 2.0), and self-funded (SPLIT 3.0) strategies. As the SPLIT Executive Council looked toward the future, it became clear that joining forces with a self-governing society with vast administrative and infrastructural support such as TTS would ensure the next chapter of SPLIT (4.0) to achieve and excel in our targeted mission to improve the lives of children who require liver transplantation.
How Do I Participate in the SPLIT Registry?
The SPLIT Registry will continue to be supported by the Data Coordinating Center (DCC) at Emmes. The Registry website and data system can be found at www.pediatriclivertransplant.org. Participating centers will continue to be invoiced every January to provide $5,000 to support the Registry.
