About the Banff-CST Joint Meeting

General Information

The CST's annual scientific meeting provides a forum for the transplantation community to share ideas, leading practices, innovative science, and educational content in transplant care. This year's meeting will bring together members of the Banff Foundation For Allograft Pathology and the Canadian Society of Transplantation for a hybrid event, combining both in-person and virtual experiences, and helping us reach an even wider audience. The 2022 Banff-CST Joint Meeting will be held at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity and ONLINE, September 19 - 23, 2022.
