Thank you for attending the 6th Annual CDTRP Scientific Meeting in Banff - pictures, presentations,
We wish to thank all 99 participants who attended the CDTRP 6th Annual Scientific Meeting in Banff, AB on Oct 15-16. Over the conference’s two days, we were able to garner knowledge from lead investigators, donors, recipients, families, collaborators and trainees in an exchange of experience and expertise.
TAKING A MOMENT TO SAY "THANK YOU"
We would like to take a moment to thank our two meeting co-chairs - Drs. Suzanne Vercauteren and Matt Weiss for putting together an excellent program and for keeping the meeting energetic and effective.
Thank you to our five Patient Co-Leads - Sandra Holdsworth, Nathalie Trudeau, Shilpa Raju, Elaine Yong and Laurie Blackstock - who co-presented their research Theme updates, lead Theme discussions and showed us the impact and power of patient partnership (as well as helping each of us to understand the complex science).
Thank you to our speakers in our Plenary Session: Decision-making in Donation and Transplantation: When Machines and Artificial Intelligence come into play - Drs. Alvin Roth, Joseph Paul Cohen, and Nathalie Voarino - as well as Dr. Mélanie Dieudé - CDTRP Principal Scientific Officer - for organizing the session.
A thank you to Sylvain Bédard and Marie-Chantal Fortin - our CDTRP Patient Researcher Partnership Co-Leads - for organizing another stellar Patient Forum and helping to bring the patient & family voice to our meeting.
A thank you to our partners at the Canadian Society of Transplantation and Canadian Blood Services for organizing a very successful Canadian Transplant Summit. We look forward to working with you again on the next meeting in Winnipeg.
A final thank you to the CDTRP team - Julie Turgeon, Stephanie Maier, Chelsea Patriquin, Leanne Stalker, and Stéphanie Larivière - for organizing the logistics, the training session, the presentations and for bringing the fun - this would not have been possible without you.
