National Geographic Traveler Magazine called Ghent the third most authentic destination in the world. In 2010 The Lonely Planet was wondering why Europe has hidden this city so long.

Dear colleagues

It is our pleasure to invite you to the first state-of-the-art meeting of the International Society of Uterus Transplantation that will take place in Ghent, Belgium, from October 19 to 20, 2018.

The International Society of Uterus Transplantation (ISUTx) was founded in Gothenburg, Sweden, in January 2016. During this meeting 70 doctors, professors and scientists from all over the world came together to share for the first time the worldwide experiences in the field of uterine transplants.

The first World Congress of the ISUTx was organized in September 2017 and brought together around 120 specialists from all over the world. Then it was decided to hold a conference on a 2-yearly basis and during the years in between them a state-of-the-art meeting.

The Ghent University, the Women's Clinic and the Transplant Center of UZ Gent have the honor to organize this first state-of-the-art meeting. The Women's Clinic, together with the Transplant Center, has started a program for uterine transplants since 2011.

We look forward to see you in Ghent !
