ABOUT THE MEETING
The meeting will be held in the vibrant, historical city of Liverpool, the cultural heart of north-west England. The meeting venue will be the National Health Service Blood and Transplant centre, which contains the largest tissue bank in the UK, and one of the largest in Europe. The venue is conveniently located in south Liverpool, with excellent road, rail and air transport links.
The theme of this year’s meeting will be ‘yesterday, today and tomorrow.’ Guest speakers will talk about where tissue banking has come from, where it stands today, and where it is likely to be heading tomorrow. In keeping with the ‘tomorrow’ theme, extra focus will be given at the meeting to those who have recently entered, or are developing within the profession; a special event to launch the new BATB Emerging Professionals group will be held. The program will also contain a section for novice presenters who are giving their first presentation at a major meeting, and a special prize will be given for the best novice presentation.
An excellent selection of guest speakers will cover a diverse range of topics, including :
