Stream 1 - Clinical cases in Pancreas Procurement

this session utilises the SIMLIFE system, where a whole cadaver is perfused with fluid under pulsatile pressure to give the illusion of a living tissue that bleeds a coloured medium. This revolutionary technology set in a unique facility is ideal for surgeons wanting to gain more practice in retrieval techniques and to discuss various retrieval scenarios and techniques with colleagues. There will be a maximum of 4 people per cadaver, so there will be plenty of opportunity to operate.



Stream 2 - Simulation of islet infusion and complications

focuses on the peri-operative period around islet transplantation, using the latest in SimMan technology, provided at The Lyonnais Center for Education through Simulation in Health (CLESS) at the University Claude Bernard.


Stream 3 - Discussions in cutting edge advances in Islet and Pancreas Transplantation

will be a series of interactive lectures on “cutting edge ideas and new paradigms in islet and pancreas transplant research”. Discussions will range from mechanisms of immune tolerance to the latest advances in stem cell and technologies. Open to all with an interest in beta-cell research, this promises to be an interactive session involving some of the leaders in the field of beta-cell replacement.
