Nephrology, Urology and Transplantation


Science and Ethics of Xenotransplantation


Recent high profile and well publicised clinical and scientific advances in genetically modified pig-to-human heart transplants have brought the science and ethics of xenotransplantation into the spotlight.

This symposium will look back at the history of xenotransplantation, examine new and emerging genetic science in the field, and set out the ethical and regulatory approval process that governed recent clinical pig-to-human transplants in the USA. A series of informative lectures from high profile international speakers involved in recent landmark advances, will be followed by a moderated panel discussion entitled ‘Xenotransplantation in the UK: pigs might fly?‘ which will explore the possibility of implementing a clinical xenotransplantation programme in the UK.

The symposium will be followed by the British Transplantation Society’s 2022 Hoffenberg Memorial Lecture, Xenotransplantation: state of the science, practice and ethics.

Please join us on-line for what promises to be an exciting symposium on this highly topical and emerging field of transplantation.
