Dear Professor, On behalf of the Symposium Organizing Committees, it gives us great pleasure to invite you and all the teachers and students of your Department to participate in the coming XXII International Symposium on Morphological Sciences to be held in São Paulo, Brazil from February 12 to 16, 2012. The central theme of this edition is "Morphology – From the Lab to the Bedside" with the aim of exploring the important applications of this biological field for nowadays health care and science development. Moreover, in this twenty-second edition, there will be special participations of the Federative International Program for Anatomical Terminology (FIPAT) of the International Federation of Associations of Anatomists (IFAA), Ibero-Latinamerican Symposium of Anatomical Terminology (SILAT) of the Pan-American Association of Anatomy (APA) and World Association of Veterinary Anatomists (WAVA). In closing, we would be pleased and honored if you would attend the meeting and help us in advertising this symposium among your friends and colleagues. Receive our best wishes. Organizing Committee

Scientific Program The scientific programme of the XXII ISMS is organized according to 4 main topics related to Morphology: Science, Clinical Research, Education and Publication. In the early mornings, there will be plenary lectures with outstanding professionals talking about relevant issues related to those main topics. After the plenary lectures, a thematic “Cutting-Edge” Mini-Symposium is going to take place each day. In the “Cutting-Edge Symposium” of Advances in the Clinical Setting, experts in different clinical specialties are going to discuss relevant issues and highlight the role of the Morphological Sciences in their research. During the afternoons, there will be parallel scientific sessions about important questions regarding science, education and anatomical issues. Moreover, the VII Ibero-Latinamerican Symposium on Anatomical Terminology (SILAT) is also going to take place. In the last day, there is going to have a session called “What we have learned, what we still have to know?” when some conclusions of the meeting are going to be presented and discussed with the audience.
