As Founder and Past-President of the Middle East Society for Organ Transplantation (MESOT), Founder and President of the Turkish Transplantation Society (TOND), and the Turkic World Transplantation Society (TDTD), it is my great honor and privilege to welcome you to the Joint International Symposium on Pediatric Kidney and Liver Transplantation that will take place as a hybrid meeting on February 10-11, 2022, at the Kizilcahamam Thermal Resort Hotel in Ankara, Turkey.
The Symposium will address challenges and evaluate the short and long-term outcomes of pediatric kidney and liver transplantation in our region including the Middle East and Mid Asia. During the Symposium we aim to stimulate thoughts and discussions around the latest developments and the current practices in the field of pediatric kidney and liver transplantation. The program will embrace keynote lectures by world-renowned professionals from the world, abstract presentations and more.
Even though we would like to welcome you to Ankara in person, if current situation remains unchanged we would be equally pleased to meet you online and exchange ideas virtually.
I look forward to welcoming you all to our capital city, Ankara, for what I believe shall be an outstanding meeting.
