Why You Should Attend
The Cutting Edge of Transplantation 2014 (February 13-15 in Chandler, AZ) is an exciting and ambitious meeting that will tackle the problem of long-term survival, one of the most difficult problems we face in organ transplantation. The meeting will focus on better understanding the problem and what can be done about it through the emergence of new technology, targets and therapeutics. The areas include the new insights into the control of complement and antibody injury, personalized medicine using molecular diagnostics that is available today, new approaches to preventing organ injury at the time of transplant, paradigm shifts in concepts about cell death and fibrosis that will allow us to prevent premature failure of transplants, the role microbes have in shaping outcomes, and others.
The 2013 CEOT meeting was immensely successful in joining basic, translational, and clinical experts in an intimate environment. The 2014 CEOT meeting will once again bring together a wide range of transplant professionals in a small-meeting setting. Speakers will present material that is cutting edge but also critically relevant to what is already happening in the lab and in the clinic. It’s subject matter you need to know now in order to be at the forefront of transplantation.
The interactive format aims to propel the field forward by generating comprehensive understanding and new collaborative interactions. This meeting is specifically designed to maximize discussion and communication between speakers and attendees and will be exceptionally valuable to all levels of experience and expertise. This meeting offers opportunities for networking that you just can’t get at larger meetings. The educational design of this activity addressses the needs of healthcare professionals and researchers working in the field of transplantation medicine.
After completing this activity, the participant should be better able to: Recommend most up to date therapeutics for optimizing long-term graft survival, based on the latest evidence, describe recent developments in identifying novel targets for future therapeutic advances in long-term graft survival, and describe the current state-of-the-art technologies and the potential for optimizing long-term transplant survival.
This activity is supported by an educational grant from Astellas.
