On behalf of TTS, AST and ESOT, we wish to extend a warm welcome to the 2023 International Transplant Science meeting in Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON, Canada.
This is the third ITS tri-society meeting series in collaboration with AST and ESOT.
This meeting will provide an excellent opportunity for transplant researchers to learn from outstanding international speakers while visiting this stunningly beautiful region.
The ITS 2023 will provide a forum for presentations and discussions of cutting-edge basic and translational science in and beyond transplantation. This meeting will not only serve as an international platform for scientific discussions on the latest ground-breaking discoveries in the field but will also provide an excellent opportunity to present your work to the scientific community. We hope this will allow for the exchange of new ideas and establish collaborative work between senior scientists, young professionals and early-stage researchers.
The ITS 2023 meeting will be held at the beautiful Georgian mansion Queen’s Landing hotel overlooking the Niagara River. Visiting this region in the spring will allow you to enjoy the beauty of cherry blossom season. Take advantage and travel around Niagara-on-the-Lake to see the spectacular white, pink, and lilac-covered branches that adorn the town and indulge in nature at its best.
The city is a 90-minute drive from Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) and 1 hour from the Buffalo Niagara International Airport (BUF would require you to cross the Canadian border by car). Transportation options will be available to facilitate travel from the airport.
On behalf of TTS, AST, and ESOT, we invite you to join us in Niagara-on-the-Lake and contribute to an exciting scientific meeting that will inspire and challenge you.
