It is our great pleasure to welcome you on behalf of our society to the 7th International Transplant Course 2-4 September 2022.
I am so excited and relieved to announce to you that this year we are back to ‘normal’ with a regular face-to-face meeting in the heart of Barcelona!
We have worked hard to provide a broad, up-to-date and concise overview of all relevant topics in HSCT geared towards young physicians, trainees, medical students and nurses interested in or working in the field of stem cell transplantation/cellular therapy. The lectures over a course of 3 days will be comprehensive, trainee-focused and interactive, presented by experts in their respective fields.
On day 1, we will walk with you through
- Basics of HSCT and cellular therapy: HLA system, donor selection, quality assessment, stem cell mobilization, and CAR-T designs, traditional and novel monitoring technologies (chimerism, immune reconstitution, MRD), pathophysiology of early complications
On day 2, we have an exciting novelty for you! Two separate tracks for adults and paediatrics, including
- Indications in adults: AML, ALL, MDS, lymphomas, myeloma, myeloproliferative neoplasms, bone marrow failures and autoimmune diseases
- Indications and management in paediatrics: paediatric ALL, AML and MDS in addition to the classical topics of immunodeficiencies and immune dysregulation, autoimmune diseases, hemoglobinopathies, aplastic anaemia, complications such as GvHD and VOD/SOS in children and most importantly viral complications
On the last day, the Physicians Programme will close with a common track, joining paediatric and adult physicians again to close the ITC with management of complications, follow-up and survivorship.
Our Nurses Programme will once again offer ‘training’ style sessions with core topics closely matched to the development needs of our less experience transplant nurses or those looking to refresh their knowledge on a wide range of established and contemporary practices in transplant nursing. This programme is especially useful for nurses looking to provide CPD evidence for JACIE accreditation or looking for inspiration for their own service developments or projects. Reduced fee registration will enable nurse attendees access to the full ITC Programme and is a great opportunity to network with peers as well as the Nurses Programme faculty who will be available for 1 to 1 or small group discussions throughout.
The faculty - as usual - consists of highly esteemed and well-known experts in their respective areas of interest, including the current president of our Society, Anna Sureda, several past-presidents such as Nicolaus Kröger and Mohamad Mohty, who will also host our upcoming EBMT Annual Meeting in 2023 in Paris.
Several symposia from our generous industry partners as well as case presentations and round table discussions will enrich the event even further.
Presenters of selected cases will receive FREE REGISTRATION and travel support. So come and apply!
The EBMT Trainee Committee will be on site to support you with any issues you might face, build networks and friendships to make the ITC an interactive, integral and inspiring part of your training in HSCT and cellular therapy!
I look forward to meeting you soon in Barcelona. Please help us with your active participation to turn this meeting into one of the absolute highlights of this year!
Enjoy the meeting!
