XVIVO’s Industry Symposia at ISHLT – Extending Horizons in Ex-vivo Lung Perfusion

  • 16:14

The scarcity of donated organs suitable for transplantation remains a challenge in lung transplantation. This Industry Symposium will focus on three different topics related to the extended utilization of donated lungs and how Ex Vivo Lung Perfusion (EVLP) can be used to break-down some of the barriers.

On April 28 at 2:00-3:00 PM EDT, We would like to invite you to XVIVO’s Industry Symposia – Extending Horizons in Ex-vivo Lung Perfusion that will be held at the ISHLT Virtual platform. Please join us for an 1 hour session to learn more about their programs and research. During the symposia you will have the chance to engage directly with the speakers through the live  chat function on the platform.
