behalf of the University of British Columbia, the British Columbia
Cancer Agency, and the Vancouver Hospital and Health Sciences
Centre, it is a pleasure to welcome you to Vancouver and the 8th
IPA World Congress of Photodynamic Medicine.
broad range of abstracts combined with our international panel
of distinguished plenary speakers has allowed us to create a program
that essentially covers the entire spectrum of photodynamic medicine
today. We are truly grateful for the tremendous support we have
been fortunate to receive from the PDT community.
addition to the scientific program, we continue the IPA tradition
of fabulous social functions where you will have the opportunity
to network informally with long-time colleagues as well as new
friends. We look forward to seeing you at both the reception and
the closing banquet.
we would like to recognize and thank our sponsors. It is through
their generous support that a meeting such as this can be convened.
We thank you for taking the time to join us in Vancouver, and
look forward to an exciting exchange of science and medicine.
