Current Topics in Histocompatibility and Transplantation is an annual series of twenty interactive lectures. This series is moderated by Dr. Sandra Rosen-Bronson, who has been actively involved in the leadership of the American Society of Histocompatibility and Immunogenetics (ASHI) and served as ASHI’s President in 2004.

This continuing education program reaches scores of individuals through real-time, ninety minute in-depth audio conferences involving organizations and people from around the world. Without ever leaving your laboratory or office, you can listen to expert scientists and key decision makers thousands of miles away. You can ask questions and get immediate answers as well as listen to other participants’ questions and discussions.


This convenient and cost-effective educational tool allows histocompatibility and transplantation professionals to keep current in the field of histocompatibility testing and transplantation.

Our program is approved by the American Board for Histocompatibility and Immunogenetics and all participants earn ABHI Continuing Education Credit (CEC) equal to 1.5 contact hours or 0.225 CEC per lecture (equal credit is given for participation in both live and recorded lectures). For 2014 our provider numbers are as follows:
