Dear Colleagues,

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to the XXXVII meeting of our European Society for Heart and Lung Transplantation (ESHLT) in Wengen, January 2024. We will be joined by several great leaders in the field of pulmonary hypertension, ex situ organ perfusion, heart and lung transplantation and mechanical circulatory support (MCS) who will be sharing their experience, knowledge and research in a very open and interactive academic atmosphere, characteristic to our Society.

The ESHLT meetings bring together the family of heart and lung specialists in the broadest sense from all over the world. The strong and close networking, not only during the scientific sessions but also during the well-established social program, remains an important factor to the success of this meeting.

Based on the tradition of having interactive sessions with enough planned space for discussion our meeting is well suited to both colleagues at the start of their career as well as those well established in the field of cardiothoracic transplantation and MCS.

A very rewarding part of the meeting is the young investigator session including the prestigious young investigator award for which abstracts are selected by the board. To encourage young investigators to participate, financial support to the meeting will be provided by the society. Finally, the organizing committee very much encourages participants to contribute to the ‘fascinating failures and surprising successes’ session by submitting abstracts.

We are looking forward to welcome you all in Wengen!

With best regards,

Dr Michiel Erasmus
ESHLT Honorary President

Dr Katrijn Jansen
ESHLT Honorary Secretary
