History & Mission


On May 27, 1999, the Council of The Transplantation Society, meeting in Rome, voted unanimously to establish a Section on Infectious Disease in recognition of the growing need for specialized research and education in this field. The newly formed Transplant Infectious Disease section held their first meeting in 2004 in Vienna, Austria. The section continues to hold meetings annually in advance of other international transplant and infectious disease meetings.


The mission of the Transplant Infectious Disease Section is to promote research and education in the prevention, diagnosis, clinical consequences, and management of the infectious disease problems of the transplant recipient.
