I continue to be inspired by our community, our members, the ASTS staff and all those who keep advancing the ASTS and its mission, despite challenging times. After a great start to the year with the Winter Symposium, the Society has continued full steam ahead in rolling out more meetings and events. The first-ever digital Surgical Fellows Symposium took place Thursday, February 11, and Friday, February 12. Highlights of the meeting included breakout room Q&A sessions, presentations given by ASTS members on a variety of transplantation topics, and Cocktails and Counterpoints sessions during which fellows debated relevant issues in transplantation.
The American Journal of Transplantation (AJT) is the official journal of the ASTS and AST and provides high quality content on a wide range of transplant related topics.

ASTS and Transplant Accreditation & Certification Council (TACC) committee nominations are now being accepted.
Thanks to the efforts of the Surgeon-Scientist Task Force, a list of funding opportunities for trainees has been added to the ASTS website.
