           Immunosuppression & Pediatric Liver Transplant

As we advance our management of the liver transplant recipient in the short-term, long-term patient and graft survival are expected to continue to improve accordingly. As a result, the prevalence of liver transplant patients maintained on chronic immunosuppressive therapy will rise, and our increasing understanding of signaling pathways and cellular interactions in transplant immunobiology have facilitated targeted strategies. This year's lectureship will focus on immunosuppression's past and future, long-term complications in liver transplant patients, and the prevalence of liver transplant recipients being successfully taken off immunosuppressive drugs and the mechanisms by which these occurs.
