In October 1988, during the Third International Conference on Locomotor Tissue Bank in Bangkok, the new association was born and renamed Asia-Pacific Association of Surgical Tissue Banking (APASTB). The founding members included Vajaradul and Aziz Nather, who became the President and First Vice-President respectively, a post he served to from 1988 to 1990.
