The 2018 Joint International Congress of the International Liver Transplantation Society (ILTS), European Liver and Intestine Transplant Association, and Liver Intensive Care Group of Europe meeting was held in Lisbon, Portugal, in May 2018. It was attended by 1200 delegates from 58 countries (Figure 1). Ten percent of the 759 abstracts were Basic Science or Translational Research and were published in Transplantation. 1 In addition, all oral presentations are available to the ILTS members at the ILTS website.2 The ILTS Basic Science Committee has selected 33 as representing the most interesting and innovative research covering the key areas of ischemia/reperfusion injury (IRI)/ organ preservation, organ bioengineering, biliary injury/ regeneration, transplant immunobiology, biomarkers, and acute kidney injury after liver transplant.
