Thank you to all the delegates who attended the 2019 ARGANZ Meeting in Auckland. We hope you enjoyed the program and the opportunity to mix with colleagues.
We are very grateful to Assoc. Prof Koenraad Mortele and Asst. Prof Alessandro Furlan for travelling to New Zealand to share their knowledge and provide us with thought provoking world class lectures. We would also like to acknowledge our expert faculty of local guest speakers, MDT panellists and chairpersons for their contributions. Additional thanks to our trade industry partners who support the meeting.
In support of abdominal research we were delighted to hear the presentations by four trainees in the main auditorium. Congratulations to the 2019 winners of the Mendelson Research Prize.
