Cell Transplant Society Update

CTS 2013

Over the past several months, the Cell Transplant Society (CTS) Council has remained focused on advancing the goals of the Society, to encourage education and research in cellular transplantation, as well as enhancing the activities and benefits of CTS membership. As a result, in the coming months CTS will be asking its Full and Senior members to participate in a call for nominations and election of new members to the CTS Council. Another initiative of the Council is the Mentored Reviewer Program, which will give young investigators the opportunity to participate in the journal article review process under the leadership of CTS mentors.

The 12th International Congress of the Cell Transplant Society looks forward to welcoming scientists and young investigators to the upcoming meeting being held July 7-11, 2013 in Milan, Italy. The meeting will bring together hundreds of delegates who will have the opportunity to discuss the latest basic and clinical research related to cell transplantation and regenerative medicine.

Mark your calendar to catch up on the new research and therapies, hosted in this unique venue, the University of Milan Campus—designed by architect Filarete in the 15th Century to house the Hospital Ca' Granda, this hospital is one of the oldest general hospitals in Italy. You will be engaged with groundbreaking science while in visiting a city rich in history, fine art attractions, wonderful food and exciting nightlife.

The Transplantation Society and the Cell Transplant Society will provide $20,000 in travel awards to highly rated abstracts submitted by CTS or TTS members, so students and postdoctoral fellows submit your abstracts and apply for the travel awards. Congress participants will have the opportunity to qualify for CME credits for their attendance at the conference.
