On behalf of the entire CNTRP, we offer our congratulations to Dr. Lori West on receiving the 2016 Woman Leader in Transplantation Award, presented to Dr. West during the 26th International Congress of The Transplantation Society in Hong Kong in August of 2016. This well deserved award provides recognition to one woman who has helped further the field of transplantation through research, policies, leadership, initiatives or other regarded contributions. The Women in Transplantation Steering Committee created the Woman Leader in Transplantation award to recognize a woman who has advanced the field of transplantation through leadership, mentorship, science or other outstanding contributions.
