LIVE STREAM the upcoming CNTRP International Summit: Emerging areas of biomedical research in transp


The CNTRP, in partnership with the Alberta Transplant Institute, is organizing the upcoming CNTRP International Summit: Emerging areas of biomedical research in transplantation in Edmonton on August 13-14, 2016. The goal of this summit is to explore and plan international research collaborations to stimulate cutting-edge and emerging biomedical and translational research focused on rejection/cGVHD, tissue injury, allograft function and patient survival.

We are inviting all CNTRP Researchers and community members to participate in this event through our LIVE web-stream that will allow you to watch all the presentations and participate in the discussion through our live-chat. To register for this live-stream event, please contact Stephanie Maier, CNTRP Program Manager, at maiers[at]ualberta[dot]ca to request the log-in details.

The international speakers participating in the meeting include:

  • Dr. Rob Fairchild, Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland What experimental mouse models can tell us about antibody-mediated kidney allograft rejection

  • Dr. Michael Hickey, Monash University, Mebourne, Australia Imaging regulatory T cell/endothelial cell interactions in the inflamed microvasculature

  • Dr. Roslyn Mannon, University of Alabama, Birmingham Late Kidney Allograft Failure: Translational studies to improve outcomes
