Introductory Address

Some 12 years ago, the City of Santiago, in Chile, was host to a group of scientists from all over the hemisphere. The group intended to evaluate what was then known about tissue transplant. It does not really matter whether or not any of the spectacular advances in that field during the past decade had anything to do with that first meeting. The one important fact for us, and our America, is that with that event a series of annual meetings was started. The themes of such Symposia have always dealt with some exciting frontier of science. Their fundamental purpose, which has always been fulfilled, has been to gather the most distinguished scientists in one particular field from all over the world together in some place in Latin America and to allow them to share their individual experiences among themselves and with Latin American students and young scientists who have just been initiated into the difficult art of wresting secrets from nature.
