Invitation to Attend

Dear Colleagues,

We look forward to seeing you at our 40th Anniversary Meeting and Scientific Sessions, April 22 – 25, 2020, in Montréal, Canada.

On behalf of the Scientific Program Committee, ISHLT President Stuart Sweet MD, and the entire Board of Directors, we hope you’ll accept our heartfelt invitation to join us.

Marking our 40th anniversary, this year is an important milestone for ISHLT. For 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.

ISHLT’s annual meetings offer the most comprehensive review of research, including late-breaking advances, dedicated to transplantation, mechanical support and related innovative therapies. From the Opening Plenary and the Symposia to the Oral Abstract Sessions and Presidential Address, ISHLT2020 offers you a broad range of opportunities to dig deep into your specialty area. The interdisciplinary nature of our organization means you’ll meet experts in related fields, something attendees always appreciate.

As always, we have partnered with stellar organizations to offer Joint Symposia. Our symposium with PVRI, Of Mice and Men, will be a must-attend session for anyone interested in pulmonary hypertension, CTEPH or lung failure and transplantation. We’ll host a joint symposium with TTS on Meeting Ethical Challenges in Transplantation through Global Partnership, which will offer a fascinating look at transplantation around the world. Finally, we’re partnering with AST to look at Challenges in Heart/Kidney Transplantation, a topic of growing relevance.

We look forward to welcoming you to Montréal, Canada for ISHLT2020!

On se voit à Montréal!
