The 2017 Transplantation Science Symposium (TSS 2017) will take place in Victoria, BC from May 24-26, 2017. This meeting will provide a wonderful opportunity for transplant researchers in the Pacific region, and for participants from Europe and the Americas to learn from outstanding international immunologists and transplantation biologists while visiting this stunning 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. The planned topics include immunology, metabolism, the microbiome, carbohydrate biology, stem cell engineering and tissue repair. The CNTRP is an active partner of the TSS 2017 and we will host a session on “crossing boundaries” in which transplant research that integrates traditionally distinct domains will be discussed. The meeting will also include breakout sessions, oral presentation opportunities for trainees, moderated poster sessions and social events to allow participants and presenters to network and discuss their latest ideas.
A REMINDER that the CALL FOR ABSTRACTS is NOW OPEN and will close on January 22, 2017. The current abstract topics include:
Allorecognition & Chronic Rejection
Tolerance and Immunosuppression
Cutting Edge Technologies for Transplant Research
Fundamentals in T/B Cells and regulatory cells
Microbiota, Innate Immunity & Metabolism
Organ Replacement and Tissue engineering

2017 INTERNATIONAL TRANSPLANTATION SCIENCE MENTEE-MENTOR AWARDS
The Transplantation Society celebrates the contributions of basic science to the field of transplantation with the International Transplantation Science Mentee-Mentor Travel Awards by recognizing the efforts of basic scientists, who have advanced our understanding of transplant science/immunobiology and/or treatment of transplant recipients, and the young investigators who will be the future leaders in transplantation.

REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN - EARLY BIRD DEADLINE MARCH 17, 2017
The 2017 TSS will be held at the Delta Ocean Pointe Hotel, located on Victoria's vibrant inner harbour, with guest rooms that offer breathtaking waterfront views. Victoria has a mild climate and an abundance of trails and parks; it is a destination for outdoor activities such as whale watching, harbour tours, hiking through ancient rain forests, or strolling through formal English gardens.
Victoria is a quick 30 minute plane ride from Vancouver International airport. The more adventuresome may want to hop on a float plane and enjoy the beautiful views of a harbour to harbour journey over the Salish Sea, or take a cruise across the strait of Georgia on BC Ferries – keep your eyes open for orcas and dolphins!
We look forward to seeing all of you in Victoria, and we promise you a meeting of great science in a spectacular setting with lots of opportunities for networking.
