Welcome to the ID COP Website 

The AST Infectious Disease Community of Practice (ID COP), the first AST Community of Practice launched, was established in 2002. The goal of this COP is to provide a forum for all individuals interested in transplant infectious diseases to network, exchange thoughts, share resources, develop research ideas and educational activities.

On behalf of the ID COP Website Working Group and the Executive Committee, we would like to welcome you to our website. We encourage all individuals interested in transplant infectious diseases to join this dynamic and growing community. Let the collaboration begin!
