TTS 2012 – Thank you!

Theater02
The Science Circuses are located at each end of the Exhibition Area. You will find the Mini-Theatres for the Mini-Oral Sessions here as well as the Poster Lounges and the Web Stations. Science Circus I includes Mini-Theatres 1 – 5; Science Circus II includes Mini-Theatres 6 – 10. In each Science Circus you will find Web Stations where you can access the web as well as the ePosters.
Via wireless headphones and dedicated channels for each mini-theater this is – to our knowledge – the first successful concept for mini-oral presentations!
Thanks to m-events and Interplan for the tremendous support!

TTS 2012 | Science Circus

Martina Mogl presented "Neohybrid Liver Graft - a Novel Concept of in Vivo Tissue-Engineering"

Rosa Schmuck presented our first results concerning "miRNA Pattern Within the Bile as a Diagnostic Tool after Liver Transplantation"

Nathanael Raschzok gave an oral presentation entitled "Silica-Based Micron-Sized Iron Oxide Particles for Detection and Loco-Regional Stimulation of Transplanted Liver Cells"

Haluk Morgül gave a talk on "MicroRNA as Biomarker for Diagnosis and Prediction of Recurrence of Human Hepatocellular Carcinoma after Liver Transplantation - Preliminary Results from a Multicenter Database"

Furthermore, the group presented a poster concerning "Prospective Validation of Serum Protein Biomarkers for Detection of Acute Liver Rejection – Initial Results with CXCL9 and CD44"

TTS 2012 | Presentations

Based on his scientific abstract on “Silica-Based Micron-Sized Iron Oxide Particles for Detection and Loco-Regional Stimulation of Transplanted Liver Cells”, Nathanael Raschzok (and Igor M. Sauer) received the TTS­-DTG International Basic Science Mentee/Mentor Award for the 24th International Congress of The Transplantation Society, in Berlin, Germany. The Basic Science Mentee/Mentor award recognizes the efforts of basic scientists, who have advanced our understanding of transplant science/immunobiology and/or treatment of transplant recipients, as well as the importance of young investigators in furthering the basic science of transplantation.

Congratulations !

PGW 00001
The postgraduate program offers an up-to-date overview on pressing clinical and basic science topics with relevance for all participants of the Berlin 2012 meeting. The program is designed to provide clinicians with an overview of the most recent advances in basic research in a bench-to-bedside approach. Updates on immunosuppression, organ-specific processes, organ supply, immune monitoring and the relevance of animal models in transplantation will help both clinicians and researchers with basic information aligning their efforts and providing the best care of transplant patients in the years ahead.

Today, Nora N. Kammer and Kristen Steinz successfully defended their thesis!

Nora defended her thesis "summa cum laude". She presented her results on labelling of primary human hepatocytes with micron-sized iron oxide particles in suspension culture suitable for large-scale preparation. In German her thesis is entitled „Markierung primärer humaner Hepatozyten mit mikroskaligen Eisenoxidpartikeln in temporärer Suspensionskultur“.
Kirsten defended her thesis „magna cum laude“. Her work is entitled „Evaluation der Applikationsrouten für die Leberzelltransplantation im Großtiermodell“


Congratulations!

The 24th International Congress of The Transplantation Society to be held in Berlin, Germany from July 15th - 19th 2012 is designed for physicians, surgeons, scientists and organ procurement personnel, who are interested in clinical and research aspects of solid organ, cell and tissue transplantation. The program is developed to encourage the exchange of new scientific and clinical information, and support an interchange of opinions regarding care and management issues, as well as socioeconomic, ethical and regulatory issues relevant to transplantation.
In addition to the classical types of scientific sessions including plenary sessions, symposia, workshops and poster presentations, we will also offer new types of scientific sessions within the Forum Futurum.
The Forum Futurum is a forum integrated in the congress that will take place on three days. Each day is assigned to a topic and the forum is dedicated to cutting-edge science in our field. The topics are Regenerative Medicine, Imaging and Tailored Pharmacotherapy.
The Forum Futurum is designed to be a highly interactive communication space where companies can introduce their products and conversations about the latest research are stirred. In a futuristic environment the Forum Futurum contributes to an extraordinary TTS 2012 Exhibition experience and will provide exhibitors the opportunity to highlight new product information to physicians and health care professionals. Enhance the educational element of your company's noteworthy products and services with a presentation in the Forum Futurum. The Forum Futurum provides exhibitors with a unique and effective marketing opportunity to hold live promotional presentations or activities designed to raise awareness of featured services and products.
The Forum Futurum will make its debut in the TTS 2012 Exhibit Hall, featuring experts from companies and scientific groups providing state-of-the-art content-led information about new technologies, products and ideas. The Forum Futurum will be open July 16th – July 18th. Every day is dedicated to one emerging field in transplantation:
Monday, July 16th, 2012: One Day on
Regenerative Medicine
Tuesday, July 17th, 2012: One Day on
Imaging
Wednesday, July 18th, 2012: One Day on
Tailored Pharmacotherapy

XXIV International Congress of TTS 2012 in Berlin

6a00d83452732869e20133f278dbee970b-800wi
The 2010 Lindau Meeting took place from June 27 till July 2. The 3rd interdisciplinary meeting brought together more than 650 young researchers from around the globe with 59 Nobel Laureates from the fields of physiology or medicine, physics and chemistry.
The  Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings provide a globally recognised forum for the transfer of knowledge between generations of scientists. They inspire and motivate Nobel Laureates and international Best Talents. Lectures of Nobel Laureates reflect current scientific topics and present relevant fields of research of the future. In panel discussions, seminars and during the various events of the social program young researchers nominated by a worldwide network of Academic Partners interact with Nobel Laureates.
Taking into account the national selection procedures, in excess of 20,000 young researchers apply to attend each Meeting. After Ruth Schwartländer attended in 2008 this year Nathanael Raschzok was chosen and received an invitation to Lindau.
