Kidney Week

Basic/Clinical Science Session

New Look at Antibody-Mediated Rejection, Including the Barbara T. Murphy, MB BAO BCh, Endowed Lectureship

November 04, 2023 | 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM

Location: Room 115, Pennsylvania Convention Center

Session Description

Antibody-mediated rejection (ABMR) remains the main obstacle to the long-term acceptance of kidney transplant. Our understanding of the mechanisms of ABMR-mediated kidney transplant injuries is evolving. This session provides new insights into cellular and molecular mechanisms leading to ABMR.
