ISHLT2022 Scientific Program Chair
On behalf of the Scientific Program Committee, ISHLT President Lara Danziger-Isakov, MD, MPH, and the entire Board of Directors, we hope you’ll accept our invitation to join us at our 42nd Annual Meeting and Scientific Sessions, 27-30 April 2022, at the John B. Hynes Convention Center in Boston, MA, USA.

ISHLT’s annual meetings offer the most comprehensive review of research and late-breaking advances in the fields of advanced heart and lung disease, transplantation, mechanical support, and related innovative therapies. From the Plenaries and Symposia to the Oral Abstract Sessions and Presidential Address, ISHLT2022 offers you a broad range of opportunities in your specialty.

For over four decades, we’ve convened the world’s most influential researchers and most innovative practitioners to share their science, ideas and passion around advanced heart and lung disease. This year’s meeting in Boston will be the first time our members have gathered in person since 2019, and we look forward to reuniting with our ISHLT colleagues from around the globe for four days of immersive education and networking in advanced heart and lung failure and transplantation.
We look forward to welcoming you to Boston for ISHLT2022!
