Dear Friends and Colleagues:

The University of Toledo is pleased to invite you to attend the 18th International Conference on Plastination. The Conference will be held from June 27 to July 1st , 2016, in Toledo, Ohio, USA.

We are honored to host this conference of the International Society for Plastination, and to welcome speakers and participants who will certainly make this meeting a resounding success.

This year the Conference will be held in conjunction with the 5th International Workshop of Toledo. This event will be a unique opportunity for participants to exchange ideas about 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 18th Conference a dynamic and enjoyable learning experience.

On June 26 (Sunday) a small get together will be offered in the Faculty Club of The University of Toledo at the Radisson Hotel. The scientific sessions will start on Monday (June 27) at the College of Medicine and will extend until June 30 (Thursday). On 1st of July as a farewell we will be visiting the Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village in Detroit. In addition to the Henry Ford Museum we made arrangments to visit the Award Winning Toledo Zoo and the famous Toledo Museum of Art. More information will be provided later.

I hope you can join us for our Conference and experience the culture and life of Toledo.

Warmest Regards

Carlos A. C. Baptista, MD, PhD
