Peter HopkinsOn behalf of the ISHLT Board of Directors and the Scientific Program Committee, we hope you will join us for our 41st Annual Meeting and Scientific Sessions, scheduled for April 27 – 30, 2021 in Toronto, Canada.

This gathering will be especially meaningful for the members of our organization. With the cancellation of our Annual Scientific Meeting this year in Montreal, the opportunity to meet live to share our research, innovations and ideas will hold a special place. What’s more, the clinical and research work we’re all doing now to understand and manage the impact of COVID-19 on advanced heart and lung disease patients will, no doubt, be shared.

ISHLT’s meetings are unique in that we bring together researchers and medical professionals from around the world and across a range of disciplines. Because of that, our meetings offer the most comprehensive review of research, including late-breaking advances, dedicated to transplantation, mechanical support and related innovative therapies.

Mark your calendar and plan to join us in Toronto next year. We look forward to engaging with you in high level research and clinical advances.
