Our warmest greetings from Houston, Texas. We would like to invite you to join us for the TT2023 meeting, to be held here in Houston from 12-15 November 2023. This meeting will bring together scientists and technicians and will be hosted by the International Society for Transgenic Technologies (ISTT). The mission of the ISTT is to advance the science and technology used in the generation and analysis of transgenic animal models and stem cells for biomedical research and biotechnology application. As part of this mission, the ISTT holds this international scientific conference approximately every 18 months to discuss the latest information on genetic engineering technologies and assisted reproduction and cryopreservation techniques. I am the current treasurer and past-president for the International Society for Transgenic Technologies (ISTT). I invite you to have a look at our organization:  https://www.transtechsociety.org

 We are truly looking forward to having this meeting in Houston. Houston is one of the most diverse cities in the United States, and importantly, is home to the Texas Medical Center, a collaboration of 61 member institutions that are world leaders in life science innovation and human health. We are also the home to NASA’s Johnson Space Center, which has served as a hub of human spaceflight activity and a training site for the astronaut corps in the USA.

Attendance at TT2023 is a fantastic opportunity to meet professionals working in transgenic technologies from around the world, including ISTT members. Join us to connect with the global community and make new connections as well as catch-up with friends and colleagues.

Please consider joining us in Houston! I look forward to meeting you in person.
