From Discovery to Clinical Use

The mission of the Federation is to increase and encourage knowledge and research on artificial organs, apheresis, tissue engineering, regenerative medicine and other related topics, to facilitate the international exchange of knowledge, and to provide education related to the improvement and optimal utilization of organ assist devices.

To fulfill this purpose, The Federation will arrange biennial congresses jointly with the Member Societies with special emphasis on international aspects and dissemination of knowledge into developing countries.
