The 2018 AATB Annual Meeting will provide attendees with education opportunities associated with many of the tissue banking technologies and innovations that continually improve tissue banking processes. Concurrent sessions will offer professionals working in areas related to donor screening, tissue recovery, tissue processing and distribution, regulatory and reproductive tissues, many opportunities to share new ideas to further improve their tissue banking operations.
The American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB) is a professional, non-profit, scientific and educational organization. It is the only national tissue banking organization in the United States, and its membership totals more than 130 accredited tissue banks and 2,000 individual members. These banks recover tissue from more than 30,000 donors and distribute in excess of two million allografts for more than 1.75 million tissue transplants performed annually in the U.S. The overwhelming majority of the human tissue distributed for these transplants comes from AATB-accredited tissue banks.
