The world's leading experts have gathered to share key data at the seventh annual American Transplant Congress 2007 (ATC) - happening now through Wednesday, May 9 at the Moscone Convention Center West in San Francisco, CA. Physicians, surgeons, scientists, nurses, organ procurement personnel and pharmacists, have come from all over to share knowledge and to speak in-depth about their latest findings. The conference expects more than 5,000 attendees over the course of the meeting. Important transplantation updates and discoveries will be released through oral presentations that span hundreds of topics that are both timely and crucial in advancing the field of transplantation medicine. The goal of this joint meeting, sponsored by the American Society of Transplant Surgeons (ASTS) and the American Society of Transplantation (AST) is to educate, inform and create an arena for exchange of new scientific and clinical information, and support an interchange of ideas focusing on transplantation care and management issues.
