About the CST

Leadership in Canadian Transplantation

The Canadian Society of Transplantation is the professional organization for physicians, surgeons, scientists and allied health professionals working in the field of transplantation. We currently have more than 500 members from across the country in all transplant fields, in clinical practice and scientific research.

The CST Annual Scientific Conference brings together CST members, representatives from transplant centres, allied health professionals working in the field, personnel from organ and tissue retrieval organizations and others from the Canadian and international transplantation communities.

Our conference is structured to incorporate the many diverse groups involved in transplantation in Canada:

  • Special interest groups (allied health, donation, heart, liver, kidney, lung, pancreas, HLA, pediatric, pharmacists)
  • CORR – annual report
  • CST clinical and basic sciences sessions and abstract presentations
  • Industry sponsored Symposia.

Our many Committees are very active each in their special area. Visit the Committees section of the website for more information.
