On May 27, 1999, the Council of The Transplantation Society, meeting in Rome, voted unanimously to establish the Section on Infectious Disease within The Transplantation Society. The mission of this section will be to promote research and education in the prevention, diagnosis, clinical consequences, and management of the infectious disease problems of the transplant recipient.
A number of projects have already been initiated by the Infectious Disease Section: the establishment of the journal Transplant Infectious Disease as the official journal of the section and sponsorship of several conferences and 2 CMV Consensus meetings.
