COVID-19 Strike Force

The ASTS prioritizes the health and safety of our members, their families, and their patients. Given the rapidly evolving nature of the COVID 19 pandemic, ASTS believes it is important to apprise our membership of:

  1. latest developments, 
  2. issues that are of specific importance to transplantation and transplant surgeons
  3. coordinated efforts with other transplant organizations, so that we deliver consistent and reliable messages

To that end we have put together a COVID 19 Strike Force.

Drs. Tim Pruett and Lew Teperman have generously committed to Co-Chair this group. Below is the list of ASTS members who have agreed to comprise this Strike Force:

  • Avi Agarwal 
  • Diane Alonso
  • Lloyd Brown
  • Vanessa Cowan
  • Andre Dick 
  • James Eason
  • Bob Merion
  • Rob Sawyer 
  • Peter Stock
  • Andrea De Gasperi (Milan Italy – ex officio)

 ASTS has also made available a portal on the ASTS web site for members to pose questions to the COVID 19 Strike Force.  Members who pose questions will be contacted by an individual from the Strike Force with their answers/recommendations.  And, the ASTS will communicate these deliberations to the general membership at regular intervals.
