Post-Transplant Infections: Updating the General Nephrologist.
ASN Renal Week Official Symposium, November, 2005
Welcome, Introduction and Program Overview
Dr. J. Harold Helderman:
Good afternoon, Ladies and Gentlemen: I am Hal Helderman from Vanderbilt University, and I was asked by the Organizing Committee to put together this luncheon symposium for your edification. I want to begin by thanking the 3 speakers since we actually did this very close to the convention time and my dear friends agreed to come on very short notice and entertain you and educate you. For that, I thank them very much. There are full disclosure statements for each of the faculty, to avoid any perception of interest or bias. I do want to thank, on that note, Roche Pharmaceuticals, for providing the unrestricted educational grant that provides your lunch and our speakers. Today's topic is posttransplant infections, and the aim of our session is to update the general nephrologist in what is a continuing and probably will always be an important issue in transplant care.
