About the Conference

The Duke Transplant Center (DTC) will host the XXI Great Lakes Transplant Immunology Forum December 6–7, 2021.

The Great Lakes Transplantation Immunology Forum (GLTIF) is an annual meeting that was inaugurated in Ann Arbor, Michigan in 2000 to provide a regional forum to share ongoing research findings, get feedback on new research ideas, promote networking, and generate research collaborations.

Dr. Charles G. Orosz (1949-2005) proposed the establishment of an annual regional transplant immunology meeting which would facilitate interactions and the free exchange of ideas and technologies between labs. This idea evolved into the annual Erie (now Great Lakes) Transplant Forum, which will hold its 21st meeting this fall, 2021.*
