Fifteen years ago, Cambridge’s John Bradley, PhD and Yale’s Jordan Pober MD, PhD developed a scientific exchange to enhance collaboration in Immunobiology. The scientific meeting has resulted in numerous collaborations between Yale and Cambridge, while providing an environment that enhances social and intellectual interaction. Based on this concept, the transplant programs at Yale and Cambridge have established an international course on Organ Transplantation, emphasizing cutting edge information in clinical and translational transplantation science. A program of this caliber and format is popular internationally, but limited. We are pleased to be the only facility hosting such an event within this region. It would be our pleasure to have you join us for the 3rd Annual Yale-Cambridge Transplantation Symposium to be held at the prestigious Yale Club in New York City this fall.

Interventional radiology is an approach to care for patients who can benefit from minimally invasive image-guided therapies. Advancements in interventional care afford improved patient care, quality and overall outcomes. These new therapies are best served with a multidisciplinary team approach coordinated by a health care team of different specialties involved in the treatment. The development of multidisciplinary care teams has been shown to improve the outcome of patients. The course will focus on three core competencies: medical knowledge, patient care and procedurals skills and practice-based learning and improvement. The course will include a series of case presentations, discussions and interactive learning's focused on addressing the advanced minimally invasive image-guided therapies and multidisciplinary management.                                                                                             

All sessions will be held at the Marriott Marquis Washington DC, 901 Massachusetts Ave NW, Washington, DC.

Movement disorders rank among the most common neurological diseases and their impact on individuals and their families is enormous. In recent years, there has been tremendous growth in new diagnostic information, pharmacological and neurosurgical treatments for Movement Disorders, as well as a greater understanding of impaired motor control function. Unfortunately, while the mechanisms underlying movement disorders are being elucidated, there remains a dearth of available therapeutic options for patients.

This workshop endeavors to provide an update in Parkinson’s disease and Movement Disorders spotlighting advances in the identification of symptomology and management of the diseases. We hope to facilitate interdisciplinary collaboration, and leverage cross-disciplinary expertise with the ultimate goal of translating promising clinical practice and clinical research into successful treatments.
