Welcome Message

Join us for the 12th Congress of the International Pediatric Transplant Association (IPTA 2023) and connect with the leading global pediatric transplantation community!

Together we will embark on a 4-day journey of scientific exchange at the Hyatt Regency Austin Hotel from March 25 to 28, 2023. State-of-the-art lectures, plenaries, workshops, oral presentations and poster receptions will stimulate deep discussions on the latest scientific research in all fields of pediatric transplantation including organ donation and ethics.

IPTA is an international organization that reaches over 640 members from 60 countries. We are particularly pleased with our recent growth in membership, especially in low and mid-resourced countries which will allow us to work towards IPTA’s goal to offer educational programs for professionals all over the globe.

Please join the international transplant community in Austin, Texas to contribute to the most important reason why we are all here - which is to improve the lives of children who need life-saving transplants. Only together can we make the world of transplanted children a better place!
