ADDISON, TX – 14 January, 2022 – The International Society for Heart and Lung Transplantation (ISHLT) will host its 42nd Annual Meeting and Scientific Sessions on 27-30 April, 2022. Attendees will meet in-person in Boston, MA USA, and the event will include educational content spanning the breadth of clinical practice and research concerning heart and lung transplantation, advanced heart and lung disease, mechanical circulatory support, and pulmonary vascular disease. Virtual access to selected education will also be available.

Headshot of Laurie Snyder“This year’s ISHLT Annual Meeting promises to be one of our best conferences ever, offering a wide range of topics on advanced heart and lung disease,” says Laurie Snyder, MD, MHS, ISHLT 2022 Scientific Program Chair. “Our plenaries include high impact scientific abstracts, inspirational keynote speakers and our Lifetime Award recipient, Dr. Hannah Valantine. The symposia include state of the art presentations and controversial topic debates as submitted by our members.”

Attendees of the meeting will be immersed in educational content covering the latest clinical advances, basic science research, and innovative technologies relevant to advanced cardiothoracic disease.

“With over 1,400 scientific abstracts submitted, our scientific sessions represent the breadth and cutting-edge science of our field,” says Dr. Snyder. “We welcome you to join colleagues in Boston, either in person or virtually, to learn and share in our ISHLT community.” The scientific program is available to browse and review at the Annual Meeting website.
