Symposium on sequencing and epitope analysis of HLA - Sept 1&2, 2015 in Vancouver
We would like to let everyone know about a small symposium taking place in Vancouver on Sept 1 and 2 to cover next-generation sequencing (NGS) and epitope analysis in HLA and the clinical applications of both, organized by the Vancouver Coastal Health Reserach Institute. The symposium will have a series of international expert speakers in both fields, including Rene Duquenois, along with seminars, exhibits and discussion groups to introduce these two cutting edge strategies and standardize our methods and interpretation across our Canadian programs with input from around the world. This symposium will be of deep interest and importance not only for our Canadian laboratory community but for all in our transplant research and clinical teams who are engaged in the various aspect of HLA biology, matching and antibody testing.
The CNTRP encourages all researchers from the solid organ and BMT communities to attend and help spread the word about this symposium.
