This was a joint meeting of the TTS, AST and ASTS with some 7,000 attendees.

Kathryn Wood was Chairman of the organising committee of this enormously successful event. The NDS reception at the University of San Francisco Club has become a traditional event at the Transplant Congresses, the first one being held in Peter Morris' hotel room at Minneapolis in 1984. The reception, which had been organised by Kathryn Wood, Sarah Ross and Monica Dolton, also celebrated the 80th birthday of Peter Morris and it was a lovely occasion with a birthday cake with 8 candles! Alan Ting, Peter Morris' first PhD student at the University of Melbourne in 1968, was there as was, probably, his last DPhil student, John O'Callaghan, who had just been awarded his DPhil at the University of Oxford.
