Who we are

  • Review progress/results of ongoing collaborative research projects
  • Propose/present new research projects
  • Discuss other transplant related issues of common interest

Ongoing Projects

  • Efficacy of Sofosbuvir-based antiviral therapy in recurrent hepatitis C after liver transplantation – a pan-Canadian observational study
  • Body mass index and outcomes of liver transplantation – a retrospective pan-Canadian analysis
