Cell Transplant Society Update
The Cell Transplant Society Council has worked to identify and draft long-term goals that will maintain CTS as a leader in the clinical aspects of cellular transplantation, while identifying new directions in cellular research. As such the Council will meet in October 2014 for a 2-day strategic retreat to discuss the future of the Society and opportunities for growth. Additionally, the Council aims to broaden the reach of the Society and is exploring opportunities to partner with other societies focused on stem cells, regenerative cells and cell biology to co-host the 2017 CTS Congress. The Call for Hosting document will be sent out to members in early fall 2014 so we encourage you to begin consider putting a proposal together host these two Sections in your city.
The CTS is also pleased to announce you can find us on both Facebook and LinkedIn, just search for the Cell Transplant Society. We hope these new platforms will increase interaction among members and spread knowledge and information about the CTS, its members and our passion for cellular transplantation. We anticipate this increased visibility will also lead to a further interest in the CTS and translate into more of our peers becoming members.
We are urging members to write posts that can be published using the CTS social media pages. These posts can be short stories on the type of cells you are working on, programs active in your institute or information about your own research. Please include an image or picture if possible. In order to maintain visibility and readership we need to be active in posting and we welcome contributions from all CTS members.
Finally we look forward to meeting our members and new members at the WTC, please stop by the TTS booth to learn more information about our Society, the benefits of membership and about our upcoming meeting in Melbourne in November 2015.
