International Anaplastology Association

28th Annual Educational Conference

 Exploring New Heights in Anaplastology: Collaboration and Connections

This year’s International Anaplastology Association conference focuses on collaboration in Anaplastology.  Conversations with colleagues outside scientific sessions often lead to great learning experiences, and this year’s program will foster these connections with colleagues and expand educational opportunities. 

Explore new heights with our outstanding program.The keynote speakers cover a wide range of topics in science and art.  Len Lichtenfeld, MD, Deputy Chief Medical Officer for the American Cancer Society, will discuss cancer outlooks and the future of cancer care.  John Gurche, MA, paleo-artist and scientist, will discuss reconstructing ancient faces and the evolution of human facial expression.  Sydney Coleman, MD, plastic surgeon and stem cell scientist, will discuss healing therapies of stem cells and regenerative medicine. If you would like to speak at the conference, please Submit an abstract for consideration before February 15th.

The hands-on workshop sessions on Wednesday are almost two hours each, allowing for in-depth conversations and training on topics such as ocular fitting and complex mold making.

You'll want to plan ahead and prepare your poster for the poster competition. Your deadline to enter the competition is April 1st.

The awards banquet is set at a The Fort, a unique destination location popular with visiting dignitaries. This adobe “castle,” a replica of Bent’s Fort - a western trading post, offers a step back in time to the culture of the Western US in the early 1800’s.

The Post-Conference Course offers two days of education training in science, technology, and art.  Day one offers hands-on surgical training in osseointegrated prostheses at the Cochlear Americas headquarters in Denver.  Day two features hand-on training with Pixelogic’s Zbrush sculpting software and a tour of Medical Modeling a local Denver company which produces 3D prints from medical imaging and is a collaborative partner for 3D model solutions for the medical field.

The conference hotel, Sheraton Denver Downtown, is located in the heart of downtown on the famous 16th Street Mall, a pedestrian hub of shopping, dining and entertainment.  Denver, the Mile-high City, is exactly 1 mile above sea level and boasts an array of entertainment opportunities indoors and outdoors.

Please join your colleagues for two great educational opportunities in one location.
