1st September, 2015
A two-day course for scientists and clinicians interested in translational transplantation biology with a focus on immunology of transplantation and State of the Art Liver and Bone Marrow Transplantation Research.
This two-day course will cover recent developments in basic transplantation immunology alongside the latest cutting-edge clinical research, with an emphasis on the ‘bench-to-bedside’ strategies being pursued within the MRC Centre for Transplantation and King’s College London.
How is the course taught?
The course is taught in the form of lectures. There will also be a poster session allowing researchers the opportunity to discuss their research and several discussion sessions.
What will I get out of it?
At the end of the two day course, attendees will have gained insight into;
• The problems facing a transplant due to activation of the innate immune system and novels ways to overcome this.
• The evidence suggesting an important role for B cells in the anti-donor response
• Mechanisms of chronic rejection
• Clinical trials in chronic rejection organised by KCL
• Mechanisms of tolerance to transplants and novel strategies to promote tolerance
• Recognising the activation state of the immune system post-trasplantation
• State of the art in cell therapies in transplantation
Who is it for?
Medical and Surgical trainees, Transplant Physicians or Surgeons, allied health professionals and scientists interested in translational transplantation biology.
Course fee is £250. However, staff and students of King’s College London and GSTT will pay only £60 for the two day course.
