The Pediatric Transplant ID Workshop proudly collaborates with a large number of international experts in the field of pediatric transplant IDs. By working together with our extensive global network of experts from variousbackgrounds in the field, we can ensure to design and deliver the most relevant and state-of-the-art program.



The members of the Organizing Committee (OC) are carefully selected experts and inspirational leaders in their respective fields. They come together on a frequent basis to develop a scientific program tailored to the needs of healthcare professionals in the field. Furthermore, they identify clinical cases and research projects within their organizations/network and review and select abstracts. They actively participate as session chairs and join the Q&A sessions, discussions and debates during the meeting.
