With the posting of the recorded presentations from IPTA 2017 our TTS staff caught up with Anne Dipchand, IPTA President, to give TTS members an overview of their recently held Congress in Barcelona, Spain.

TTS IHQ: Dr. Anne Dipchand, the recent IPTA Congress was a great success. Could you please provide us with a brief overview of the Congress?

Anne Dipchand: The 9th Congress of IPTA was incredibly successful and we are very proud of both the excellent scientific quality of the sessions and the excellent attendance of over 560 international delegates.
