Welcome Message

Dear Colleagues,

It is a great honor and privilege to announce the 18th Congress of the Middle East Society for Organ Transplantation (MESOT) to be held on May 24-26, 2023 in Ankara, Turkey. The Congress will be endorsed by The Transplantation Society (TTS), The Turkish Transplantation Society (TOND) and The Turkic World Transplantation Society (TDTD).

Transplantation activities in MESOT countries are growing daily and the quality of the medical and surgical treatment provided for the patients is on par with the most developed countries in the world.

The 18th Congress of the MESOT will be an ideal opportunity to share and learn from each other. State-of-the-art lectures, plenaries, oral presentations and poster receptions will stimulate deep discussions on the latest scientific research in all fields of organ transplantation in the Middle East, Mid Asia and the world.

We are currently planning on a live meeting. However, depending on the circumstances, it may become a hybrid meeting and we will keep you updated regularly through MESOT 2023 website at https://www.mesot2023.com

The scientific, cultural, and historical elements Ankara as the host city would offer participants from all over the world an unforgettable experience. We warmly invite you all to come and enjoy our Turkish hospitality, and we look forward to welcoming you to Ankara in May 2023.
