MABUHAY - is the ubiquitous Tagalog greeting meaning "long life", "good health", "best wishes" and "welcome". With our heartfelt "Mabuhay", we welcome everyone to the 15th Congress of the Asian Society of Transplantation on November 27-30, 2017 set in majestic Cebu, Philippines.
CAST is the definitive biennial transplant congress for Asia. Coming from a very successful CAST 2015 held in Singapore which was attended by more than a thousand participants stretching from Asia to Africa, CAST 2017 will uphold the exceptional quality and comprehensive coverage of transplant topics, issues and controversies that have been the hallmark of our past congresses. Banking on the exceptional line up of speakers both from our beloved Asian counterparts as well as contributions from experts in the US and in Europe, we will tackle the most burning issues and questions on organ and tissue donation and transplantation. We will also highlight its ethical and legal aspects with special emphasis on how transplantation and donation is practiced in Asia.
For CAST 2017, we will also allocate a significant number of sessions for Asian research and innovations in transplantation. These will be moderated and chaired by world-renowned transplant experts. With this, we hope to attract all transplant professionals - physicians and surgeons, as well as pharmacists, nurses, psychologists, nutrition and rehabilitation specialists, clinical and donation coordinators and equally important, all basic science and clinical transplant researchers.
Cebu is a historic city in the Central Visayan region. Mactan Island is where Ferdinand Magellan first landed in 1521 from his historic world-encircling journey from Spain and was immediately enthralled by its natural beauty.
The city is now a combination of modern five-star amenities set amidst kilometers long white sand beaches, coral laden reefs and wading waters for the gentle "butanding" or whale shark. The city itself is complete with all the attractions of a busy and bustling metropolis. The Cebu nightlife is not to be missed and will certainly be a welcome respite from our day-long meetings and educational activities. Add to these, the exquisite local Visayan cuisine topped by our world-renowned Filipino hospitality.
We look forward to welcoming you to Cebu - our beach destination capital! We promise a memorable congress of learning, networking, forging of new friendships and renewal of old ones as well as an opportunity for rest and recreation to re-energize and re-boot before heading back to your daily grind.
