Dear Colleagues,

It is a great honor and privilege to announce the 19th Congress of the Middle East Society for Organ Transplantation (MESOT) to be held on November 5-6-7, 2025 in Ankara, Turkey.

From its inception, the goals of MESOT have been to promote and encourage research and education and to create an arena of communication and collaboration in the field of organ transplantation in our region. Therefore, MESOT International Congress is a major international transplant congress and attracts a broad range of health professionals.

The 19th Congress of the MESOT will provide a forum for exchange of new scientific and clinical information relevant to solid organ and tissue transplantation. It will also offer a platform to connect with global experts, and contribute to advancements in transplantation medicine, fostering collaboration and influencing the field’s future direction.

The 19th Congress of the MESOT has a very special meaning for us as at the same time, we will be celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Organ Transplantation in Turkey. It was on November 3, 1975 that our team performed the first successful living related kidney transplantation in Turkey from a mother to her 12-year-old son at Hacettepe University Hospitals. This has been a milestone in the development of organ donation and transplantation in Turkey and provided hope for millions of chronic organ disease patients. MESOT 2025 Congress will be part of our celebration of this impressive history and we truly hope that you will be able to join us on this very exciting and proud occasion.

As the capital city of Turkey; the scientific, cultural, and historical elements of Ankara will offer participants an unforgettable experience. We will keep you updated regularly through MESOT 2025 website at

We warmly invite you to come and enjoy Turkish hospitality and we look forward to welcoming you to Ankara in November 2025 on this meaningful occasion.
