Happy Birthday, TAFS forum!

The TAFS forum was founded on March 22, 2002 - 10 years ago. A reason to celebrate, maybe to be a little bit proud of what we have achieved, but most of all to say thank you. Thank you, founders of TAFS, for your vision and courage. Thank you, members, for your commitment, scientific advice, financial support, and friendship. And, last but not least, thank you all for your interest and encouragement.


We have great plans for the future. Learn more about our 'New Vision for TAFS' from our website or contact us directly.


Best wishes,

the TAFS team.
