Even though heart transplantation activity and immunosuppression pipelines appear stagnant around the world, Heart Failure and Transplantation disciplines remain a flagship of ISHLT.

Five dedicated and interactive symposia will renew enthusiasm and energy to heart transplant clinicians by covering hot topics in transplant medicine.

Awareness and management of donors, changing epidemiology, clinical handling of HLA antibodies and the heart-kidney relationship, challenges in resolving unanswered post-transplant issues and a glimpse into the future with clinical applications of proteomics and genomics will be embraced by interactive formats and bench to bedside approaches.

Some heavy brainstorms and hurricanes of brisk ideas are forecasted ... and desired.
