This month’s interview comes from Milan, Italy, from long-term member, colleague and friend Dr. Dario Cattaneo (who wins my vote for best dancer at the wonderful congress dinner at the St Laurence Cathedral in Rotterdam).  Dario shares his experiences in the worlds of TDM for immunosuppressant and anti-infective drugs, and how recently these worlds have started to intertwine.

What did we learn from the Rotterdam 2015 Congress?

Social Media
After this year’s congress in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, we all went home with some gems to put into practice at work – whether in the clinic, new research ideas or problem solving to better serve patients and clients. We also learned some things about each other: some members have famous children, others are really really great dancers.

This month we collected members’ responses to the question “What did you take home with you from the recent congress?”. If you would like to send a response, please Contact the Communications Committee.

Recollections with Dr. Tanaka

Benefits of Membership - A Presidential Chat

Langman 150x200This month we welcome Loralie Langman as the IATDMCT president for 2015-2017. We asked Loralie and our past and future presidents what they consider the greatest benefit of being members of the association. This is an extension of the interviews conducted in the Compass December 2010 issue.

"What do you consider the greatest benefit of being a member of the IATDMCT?" .
