“I would highly recommend this course to anyone with an interest in organ transplantation or immunology whether a clinician or a scientist”
“There was update to date information and it also presented research currently being worked on at MRC “
“Program very well organised. This is an ideal scenario to discuss issues on treatment between clinicians and researchers”
