Welcome to the New Cell Transplant and Regenerative Medicine Society
The Cell Transplant Society is thrilled to outline some new changes to our Society that were annouced during the recent 2015 IPITA-IXA-CTS Joint Congress in Melbourne, Australia.
The first and most exciting announcement was made during recent strategic planning sessions for the Society; the CTS Council has approved a name change for the Society to become the "Cell Transplant and Regenerative Medicine Society." This new Society name better describes the membership of our interdisciplinary group, and will broaden our scientific focus to include research and researchers in the growing and exciting field of regenerative medicine. In the coming months you will see our website, social media and 2017 Congress announcements reflecting this change and utilizing our new logo as shown below.
The CTRMS Council has also adopted a new mission statement to reflect the expanded goals of our Society. The new mission is:
"The Cell Transplant and Regenerative Medicine Society exists to be the leader in developing and translating, safe cellular and regenerative therapies to patients. The Society will promote research, collaboration and focus on regulatory matters, as they relate to clinical translation."
We look forward to updating the membership on the ongoing activities of the Society throughout 2016.
