ADMIRE COST are hosting a special symposium on 30th June 2016
“New insights in aldosterone physiology”.
Cordeliers Research Centre, rue des Ecoles, Paris, France
The French Society of Physiology and the Federation of the European Societies of Physiology wish to welcome you to the jointly-organized FEPS Congress in Paris (Centre des Cordeliers) for 3 days of high-level scientific gathering and workshops, from June 29 to July 1, 2016. This meeting will highlight the pivotal role of Physiology as a major scientific discipline in the “omic” world. The meeting will focus on the importance of function versus gene in the context of translational research as well as evolutionary and integrative biology.
The meeting will include oral and poster presentations, symposia, keynote addresses and plenary lectures. Workshops and networking opportunities are highly encouraged. The meeting will be include the European Young Physiologist Symposium and the Teaching symposium on June 29, 2016.
ADMIRE Symposium, 22 April 2016, Rome “MR and Aldosterone:friend or foe of the cardiometabolic syndrome?”
ADMIRE will host a 1 day young symposium ‘by young researchers for young researchers’ on the role of aldosterone and mineralocorticoid receptor in cardiometabolic syndrome.
Where: IRCCS San Raffaele Pisana, 25 minutes outside Rome city centre.
When: 22nd April 2016 9am-5pm.
Keynote Lecture by Prof. Bruno Fève, French Institute of Health and Medical Research, Paris ‘MR, adipose tissue and novel adipokines: from bench to bedside.
Cardiometabolic syndrome encompasses a myriad of metabolic dysfunction characterized by insulin resistance and impaired glucose tolerance, atherogenic dyslipidemia, hypertension and intra-abdominal adiposity. Recent advances in mineralocorticoid hormone research has revealed important pathophysiological roles for Aldosterone and its receptor MR in cardiometabolic syndrome. The symposium will allow a unique opportunity to share ideas and expertise, present and discuss preliminary data, and learn about the most recent advances on this topic. All participants are welcome to engage in the discussion sessions and actively interact within the workshop.
Update: We have selected 10 abstracts for oral presentation. These young researchers have been awarded a bursary of up to €400.

Clinical Trial Workshop, Paris, 22nd June 2015
ADMIRE COST together with the INI-CRCT (Cardiovascular and Renal Clinical Trials) French network (http://www.inicrct.org/) coordinated by Patrick Rossignol, Nancy, France) have organised a one-day training workshop in Paris, dedicated to clinical trials, for the researchers of our two networks. Topics covered include ‘How to design a Randomised Clinical Trial’, ‘RCT Statistics for dummies’ and ‘How to write a RCT protocol’. Leading clinical researchers will provide an overview of trials they have been involved in and lessons learnt.
ADMIRE COST will support 10 junior researchers (PhD students and Postdoctoral researchers <8 years post PhD). This bursary will cover transport, hotel (for 2 nights and breakfast) and lunch during the meeting) (Maximum reimbursement €500 euros).
