International Society for Organ Donation and Procurement Update
2019 Organ Donation Congress
We are eagerly anticipating the upcoming 15th Congress of the International Society for Organ Donation and Procurement to be held November 14-16 in Dubai. A relentless focus on advancing organ donation and the challenges of meeting the needs of patients awaiting organ transplantation is the inspiration for this meeting.
Keynote sessions will examine issues and topics driving change and innovation in the organ donation community.
A new focus this year is the launch of a Research in Donation workshop focused on elevating efforts to expand the burgeoning science in donation best practices. Donor interventions, organ preservation, organ utilization, standardization of research language and data collection will all be areas of exploration.
Dubai is at the crossroad of the global community, a perfect forum to hear innovative scientific presentations, address the challenges of increasing deceased donation and sharing best practices across donation communities of excellence.
Please finalize your plans to join us for this ground-breaking Congress where our aim is to advance the science of donation through lively debate and conversation while deepening our connections and expertise across the global communities we serve. This is an important milestone in the development of sound national organ donation systems in the United Arab Emirates and other Middle East nations.
See you in Dubai!
