This year's IPITA is being held in Lyon, France. The Congress will be based within the new ‘state of the art’ Mathematical Institute which is an outstanding conference facility and an ideal sized venue for an IPITA Congress.
The Scientific Program will cover all aspects of whole pancreas and islet transplantation (both research and clinical practice). The Congress will have a specific focus on:
Developing increased collaboration between the whole pancreas and islet transplant communities with the aim of moving towards an integrated, patient-centred approach to beta-cell replacement.
Did you know that by donating, you can save the lives of 8 people! BeADonor Month occurs every April across Canada. It can be a rewarding way to give back to your community. The best part about BeADonor Month is that everyone is welcome to participate. What’s important is that your event is helping to raise the awareness of organ and tissue donation and transplantation.

The MUHC Organ Transplant Patients’ Committee invites you to their Celebration of Life fundraiser to benefit the Royal Victoria Hospital Foundation’s Organ Transplant Fund. Every year, more than 150 lifesaving transplants are performed at the Royal Victoria Hospital – making our hospital the largest multi-organ transplant centre in Quebec. Money raised at this event will go towards purchasing and upgrading critical equipment for the Transplant Department, as well as education and training for the nursing team.
Tickets: $125 per person, $50 per child (3-10 years)
