Welcome Message

It is with great pleasure and anticipation that we wish to invite you to the 27th International Congress of The Transplantation Society which will be held in Madrid, the capital of Spain, from June 30 to July 5, 2018.

Congress Vice-Chair

TTS has recognized the leading role of Spain in donation and transplantation, with the Spanish Model having become a reference worldwide. TTS and Organización Nacional de Trasplantes (ONT) were awarded the Prince of Asturias Award (considered as the Spanish equivalent of the Nobel Prize) in 2010 in the field of International Cooperation in recognition of their joint efforts in promoting ethical practices in transplantation.

Together with our partners in The Sociedad Madrileña de Trasplante (SMT) and The Sociedad Española de Trasplante (SET), we have brought together a high-profile scientific program committee with the aim of developing a broad and exciting agenda that will cover a diverse array of topics, ranging from cutting-edge science to the latest controversies in ethics and public policy. Issues relevant to developing transplant programs, organ donation and procurement will be a highlight for many participants.

The destination and host city of the congress, Madrid, is a cosmopolitan metropolis that combines modern infrastructure with extensive cultural and artistic heritage. Madrid boasts the status of a financial, administrative and corporate center, while at the same time remaining a tolerant, passionate and lively city. Its individual artistic tradition effortlessly embraces multiple external influences, both past and present, thus highlighting the city’s continuing openness to new ideas. Located in the center of Spain, Madrid has excellent air and land connections with major destinations within, and outside, the peninsula.

We look forward to having your company on board for this unique experience and to help us put forward the best TTS International Congress yet.
