The European Society for Organ Transplantation (ESOT), the Belgian Transplantation Society and The Transplantation Society (TTS) organize the I ESOT Basic Science Meeting and the XI TTS Basic Science Symposium. This meeting will be chaired by Michel Braun and will take place in Brussels on 12-15 March 2009.
This congress aims at promoting basic research in the field of transplantation and brings together scientists from academia and research institutions from Europe and around the world. The scientific program for this four day event includes invited lectures by 25 internationally acknowledged scientists, as well as contributed oral communications and poster sessions. Lectures highlight important areas of transplantation immunology and are part of a series of symposia focusing on the latest developments in a wide variety of topics such as innate recognition of pathogens and new mechanisms of immune regulation.
On Thursday the 12th of March 2009, Peter Doherty, Laureate of the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 1996, will address the first joint ESOT and TTS Basic Science Symposium at the Plaza Hotel in Brussels.
