ATI Seminar Series

The Alberta Transplant Institute Seminar Series is a forum for discussion of the latest advances in transplantation and an opportunity to highlight the great work of Institute members.  It is a platform to develop collaborations within the Transplant groups and learn from each other.  This series also features high-quality international speakers who are world leaders in transplantation. The Seminar Series is presented in collaboration with the University of Calgary.

Seminars are presented every Wednesday, Sept-June

12:00PM-1:00PM  in Classroom D (Room 2F1.04 WMC)

Call for Speakers: If you would like to present your research at the ATI Seminar, or if you have suggestions for topics and/or speakers, please contact  We currently have a number of openings for Winter 2017.

Please note: the ATI will soon be replacing the paper-based sign in process with an online self-registration system for recording attendance at the seminar for Continuing Medical Education credits, or for Continuing Professional Development credits. The login for the registration system will be available here once it is launched.

In Edmonton, the ATI Seminar is hosted by Dr. Simon Urschel and Dr. Luis Hidalgo. In Calgary, the seminar is hosted by Dr. Faisal Khan.
