The American Society of Transplantation (AST) and the Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine International Society (TERMIS) are coming together to launch a new webinar series called:
Joining Forces to Shape Our Mutual Future
The immediate short-term goal of the webinars is to establish a collaboration between the two societies, who are leaders in their respective fields of transplants and regenerative medicine.
The medium-term goal of the webinars is to prepare the ground to a new conference series, the World Conferences of Transplant and Regenerative Medicine that will be launched once we will have left the COVID pandemic behind us.
The long-term goal of the webinars (and of the new conference series) is to bring together experts from both fields on the same stage for the first time, in order to share knowledge and ultimately foster progress in organ bioengineering, regeneration and repair which will shape and define the future of both worlds.
The webinars will be held quarterly and will consist of a 1-hour session, featuring two speakers, one proposed by each society. In 2021, access to webinars will not be restricted in order to stimulate interest and promote the event beyond the two societies.
Our ISCT GI Committee endorses this AST and TERMIS endeavor and embraces this vision.
