Welcome Message



Dear Colleagues

It is my great pleasure to invite you to Singapore for the 14th Congress of the Asian Society of Transplantation (CAST). The forthcoming CAST meeting is held in Singapore, the “City of Lion”, between 23rd and 26th August 2015. You would have already received the Announcements for this meeting. A sumptuous feast of academics awaits you. The program has been planned with the future growth of Asian countries in transplantation being envisaged.
In Asia, the 1st congress of the Asian Society of Transplantation was held at Bali Island, Indonesia, at 1989.The scientific and medical level of the organ transplant of the countries of Asia improved for 24 years of after that.
The result of this success is, however, that we are facing a new problem: Shortage of organs. Shortage of the number of organ donation from deceased donor is a serious problem for the countries of all Asia.
In CAST2013, more than 1300 participants from 41 countries visited Kyoto. Much more numbers of participants are expected in CAST2015.
Please join us at Singapore.Dr. Anantharaman Vathsala and LOC will make you very comfortable with Singapore’s warm hospitality and excellent arrangements for this Conference.
We are looking forward to meeting you in Singapore.

Yours Sincerely,


A Vathsala Singapore,
President
Asian Society of Transplantation
