BLTG Transplant Meeting - Register Now

We are delighted to announce that the fifth meeting of the British Liver Transplant Group (BLTG) is taking place on Tuesday 17th September and the morning of Wednesday 18th September at the Technology & Innovations Centre, University of Strathclyde, Glasgow.

As an affiliated group of BASL, the BTLG has built on the role of the UK and Ireland Annual Meeting and will integrate the meetings previously organised by each individual transplant centre to offer a central stage for those operating in or with a strong interest in the field of liver transplantation.

The meeting starts on Tuesday 17th September and continues on Wednesday morning with a joint symposium with BASL. The Wednesday morning programme can be viewed on the BASL2019 events entry and a full BLTG programme will be added below when available.

Highlights of the meeting include the ‘Williams-Calne Lecture’, given this year by Professor Vincenzo Mazzaferro (Fondazione IRCCS Istituto Nazionale dei Tumori di Milano, Italy) and the Lecture by the Andy Burroughs Young Investigator Award Winner.
