It is indeed my privilege to be the first Vice-Chancellor of Gujarat University of Transplantation Sciences. It is a dream come true of Prof. H.L. Trivedi and his team to have academic and research excellence in an emerging and innovative field of Transplantation. This dream saw the light of the day due to vision and foresightness of Government of Gujarat taking lead in the whole world by creating University dedicated to the Transplantation and Allied Sciences.

Transplantation is a relatively new science which started in 1954 when first successful kidney transplant was performed between identical twins in Boston. In the span of 65 yrs., it has made tremendous progress from experimental procedure to routine and reliable lifesaving treatment. In India, this science has a relatively short history but has made considerable impact on lives of patients with end stage organ failure. However, there is no structured program for teaching and training for future generation or facility for research in the field of transplantation. This inspired us to create a university dedicated to transplantation and allied sciences. Our vision is to develop the highest standards of clinical care by setting the yardstick in post-graduate training and teaching, facilitating high-quality and translational research for the advancement of humanity.

The team at IKDRC-ITS is fully aware that our task is not easy and is akin to that of directing a boat in a long journey. This boat does not have an engine but uses paddles to propel it. There are many paddlers and for this boat to move fast and in the right direction all the paddlers must do their bit. The paddling must also be synchronized in order for the journey to continue. I am sure that team will strive everyday towards betterment by sincerely committing to the cause. With the blessings and good wishes of all of you, we shall be able to make University, a place of knowledge and scientific discovery in years to come.
