Sponsorship Opportunities Program
The Transplantation Society will be holding its 15th Transplantation Science Symposium in Victoria, BC, Canada from May 24-26, 2017. This is the second time the Transplantation Science Symposium (formerly Basic Science Symposium) will be held in Canada. Previous Basic Science meetings have been held in Cape Cod (USA), Paris (France) and Lorne (Australia) and have left a significant record of achievement locally and internationally. We are certain that this meeting will provide a wonderful opportunity for transplant researchers in the Asia-Pacific region, and for participants from Europe and the Americas, to learn from outstanding international immunologists and transplantation biologists while visiting this stunningly beautiful region of the world.
The TSS 2017 will provide a forum for presentation and discussion of cutting-edge basic and translational science in and beyond transplantation. We are planning a stellar lineup of regional and international speakers covering a range of topics in immunology, metabolism, the microbiome, carbohydrate biology, stem cell engineering and tissue repair. We are also excited that the Canadian National Transplant Research Program will host a session on “crossing boundaries” in which transplant research that integrates traditionally distinct domains will be discussed, and it demonstrates that this meeting is strongly supported by the local Transplantation community. The meeting is run as efficiently as possible to keep costs down to allow junior scientists and researchers from around the world to attend this meeting, with a number of programs to achieve this. However, we need partner organizations to support us by providing sponsorship in order to deliver this world-class meeting. We are seeking sponsorship from organizations such as yours, and have provided in attachment samples of opportunities that we offer, but we would be happy to discuss other areas of involvement you may wish to explore.
We look forward to your involvement with the transplantation science community.
