After two successful events in Sydney, the International Congress of The Transplantation Society (TTS) is set to return to the city in 2026.
3,000 global delegates will gather at the International Convention Centre Sydney over four days to collaborate on cutting-edge science, latest clinical developments, ethics and public policy.
BESydney’s CEO Lyn Lewis Smith said: “Sydney and NSW are recognized for their expertise and high standard of care in transplantation – a vital component for the provision of modern, quality health care and we can’t wait to showcase our burgeoning health precincts and the transplanters who are true global talents in their field”.
Sydney is home to several research centres and groups, including the Garvan Institute of Medical Research, Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute and The Charles Perkins Centre at The University of Sydney. NSW hosts national centres for paediatric liver transplantation, islet cell transplantation and pancreas transplantation and there were 320 organ transplant recipients in NSW in 2021.
