Dear Colleagues and Friends,
It is our great pleasure and privilege to invite you to Dresden in March 2016 to take part in the 4th Dresden International Symposium on Therapeutic Apheresis and the 1st Congress of the European Group - International Society for Apheresis. We are planning a meeting of broad interest for physicians, nursing staff and scientists involved in all areas of therapeutic apheresis and treatment of severe lipid disorders. The congress is being held in partnership with the European Group - International Society for Apheresis e. V. (E-ISFA) and other national and international societies and the scientific program will benefit greatly from their contribution and collaboration.
The meeting will be held in the International Congress Center Dresden, across the street from the historic city of Dresden and within walking distance to famous places such as the Church of Our Lady (Frauenkirche), Royal Palace, Zwinger or the Semper Opera House. Hotels will be available locally and mostly within a few minutes walking distance from the Congress Centre. The scientific program is currently under preparation by the Scientific Committee.
We are aiming to provide a synthesis of all current aspects of established and upcoming extracorporeal treatments for metabolic and immunologic disorders and put them into context with currently available and future pharmacological therapies. We welcome recent clinical and experimental results submitted in abstracts form, from which we will select oral and poster presentations. Specific sessions will address our nursing staff and physicians interested in a lipidological curriculum, both primarily held in German.
We are hoping you will find the program and the city exciting and stimulating enough to join us in Dresden and be a member of the European apheresis community. We look forward very much to welcoming you to Dresden in March 2016.
