Basic Science Committee Update
Rolf Martin Zinkernagel
The Basic Science Committee is looking forward to the 13th TTS Basic Science Symposium/ 3rd ESOT Basic Science Meeting being held in collaboration with the European Society for Organ Transplantation from November 7-9 at the Hotel Concorde La Fayette in Paris, France. This meeting will continue the successful series of Basic Science meetings, the last of which was held in Cape Cod in 2011. The Paris meeting is chaired by Cristina Cuturi, Nantes, France together with co-chairs Marc Dahlke from Regensburg, Germany and Stefan G. Tullius, Boston, USA.
An outstanding group of internationally highly recognized speakers will be presenting their latest findings in the plenary sessions on regulation, memory, innate and intestinal immunity, biomarkers, and translational research. One of the highlights of the meeting will be the keynote address by Nobel laureate Rolf Martin Zinkernagel. The best submitted abstracts will be selected for oral and poster presentations.
The Basic Science Committee is continuing the collaboration with national and regional transplant societies to award up to 25 Mentor/Mentee Travel Awards for the meeting. A Basic Science Networking event will provide a wonderful opportunity to socialize and to recognize the awardees.
The Basic Science Committee members are looking forward to see you at this exciting symposium in the extraordinarily beautiful city of Paris.
