Programme Highlights

Following the theme of ESOT Congress 2021 “Interplay, Connect, Interface” the scientific programme of this edition will be based on 5 domains focusing on the most relevant topics for organ transplantation – topics that very often are transversal across disciplines and relevant to multiple organs.

Each session of the congress will be assigned to a certain domain. Such design will allow delegates to have a seamless journey through the programme.
