“12th International Interim Conference on Plastination
Durban, South Africa, July 2 to 7, 2017 ”

Dear Friends and Colleagues
The Discipline of Clinical Anatomy in the School of Laboratory Medicine & Medical Sciences, College of Health Sciences, University of KwaZulu Natal, Durban in conjunction with the International Society for Plastination (ISP) announces the first ever workshop/conference on plastination in Africa. The 12th International Interim Conference/workshop on Plastination will be held from July 2-7, 2017, in Durban, South Africa - one of the most beautiful and leading tourism destination in South Africa!
We are honored to host this interim conference of the International Society for Plastination, and to welcome national and international speakers and participants who will certainly make this meeting a resounding success. The theme of the Conference/workshop ‘Plastination and Anatomy Education: Challenges in Sub-Saharan Africa’ could not have come at a very critical moment of South Africa’s educational road map.
This important scientific event will be unique because participants will have the opportunity to exchange ideas regarding plastination, and also learn the technique by hands-on practice from a select group of expert scientists from all over the world.  Whether you have experience in plastination or you are a novice, there will be something for everyone. 
I hope you will join us to help make the 12th Interim Conference a dynamic and enjoyable learning experience. For more information please contact me at Azu@ukzn.ac.za and visit the conference website at http://plastination2017.co.za/
Warmest Regards
Dr. OO Azu
President of the Interim Conference
