Welcome Message

From Dr. Kim Solez:

It is a great pleasure to welcome you to this 10th Banff Conference on Allograft Pathology to be held at the Rimrock Resort Hotel Aug. 9-14th, 2009.  I acknowledge with considerable pride and gratitude all the splendid help we have received from so many people over the years that have made these conferences possible.

It is very nice to see all the progress we have made in the last 18 years since this process in generating consensus and moving classifications forward began in 1991.  Each conference seems to accomplish more and be better than the last so we look forward with great anticipation to this 2009 meeting.

We invite professionals with an interest in all the various aspects of transplant pathology to attend and participate in the meeting, including nephrologists, transplant surgeons, transplant pathologists, clinicians and basic scientists working in transplantation and other associated trainees, as well as those in associated industries and agencies.  We are making a special effort to attract young people and delegates from developing countries.

Toward the end of the conference midday on August 14th  we will move briefly to the Banff Centre for Conferences and the Trans-Canada Pipeline Pavilion where these conferences began in 1991 to celebrate "the way we were", where we have been, where we are now, and where we are going.  As our plans exist right now we will not be back in Banff until 2017 (2011 will be in Paris, and the 2013 meeting will likely be in Mexico or Brazil, and 2015 in Sweden), so it will be good for you to savour the ambiance of Banff while you are here!

I look forward to seeing you at the meeting in Banff in August 2009.

Best personal regards,
Dr. Kim Solez
