The plans for the IPITA 2017 Congress continue to progress nicely. The Abstract Review process has now been completed and the Scientific Programme Committee met last week to allocate successful abstracts to oral or poster presentations. Successful authors will be notified in the next 10 days.
The series of Plenary Talks will bring together many of the leading figures in the fields of pancreas and islet transplantation. Plenary talks will address a broad range of key clinical and scientific topics relevant to beta-cell replacement. Exciting additions include Plenary Sessions on Beta-cell biology and ‘Novel technologies relevant to beta-cell replacement’, and a ‘Dragons Den’ for ‘blue-sky’ thinking.
