IPITA 2019 is approaching fast and your YIC is busy planning a number of pre-congress symposia. These are detailed below. There is a great mix of practical, scenario-based clinical sessions and basic science talks. Each symposium will provide ample opportunity to network with professionals in your fields of interest. Please note that registration prior to the event is required with limited availability. Registration will be on a first-come first-served basis so don’t miss out.
will be a cadaver-based session with hands-on experience of organ retrieval. This 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.
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.
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.
The YIC are organising a number of events throughout the IPITA congress especially for young investigators so watch this space and follow us @IPITA_YIC to find out more and don’t forget to register for the symposia.
