Immuno 2013

Dear Friend,
It is my pleasure to invite you to the new Trends in Inmunosuppression meeting to be held from 11 - 12 March, 2013,in Barcelona, Spain. We will be celebrating the 20th anniversary of this meeting, which aims to review immunosuppression in organ transplantation.
This meeting has become a reference in organ transplantation and this year we want to give it special importance. We have invited several world authorities on the subject. The program will consist of a series of roundtables where discussions will revolve around aspects of basic research and clinical application in our patients.
We look forward to welcoming you to the attractive and modern city of Barcelona and encourage you to evaluate the conference as an opportunity to update your knowledge. Kindly submit your abstracts which will be considered for presentation either as an oral communication or poster presentation.

Thank you for considering this conference to your calendar.
I look forward to welcoming you, with warm greetings, to Barcelona.
Sincerely,

Dr. JM. Campistol
President of the SCT
The Catalan Transplant Society (SCT)
