13th Global Cardio Vascular Clinical Trialists Forum

SAVE THE DATE: 1-3 December 2016, Washington, DC

Course Directors: Faiez ZANNAD, Nancy – FRA, Bertram PITT, Ann ARBOR – USA

The Global CardioVascular Clinical Trialist Forum (CVCT) is well-known in Europe, where for 12 years it has been bringing together leading experts in CV clinical trials to talk about the challenges faced by investigators, industry, regulators and academics as they plan, design and conduct the trials shaping future medical practice.

Since 2014, it’s America’s turn to discover the CVCT experience. Held in the US for the first time, the regional audience showed great support for this meeting, making up 74% of the delegation. Strong high-level participation from regulatory and government agencies, in particular the FDA and NHLBI, meant that all stakeholder could exchange in a free and open debate with renowned leaders in the field, examining in detail the background of knowledge leading to the design of major trials.

Also, this year too, a CardioRenal session will be organized with the support of INICRCT network.

Mark your agenda now for this year’s edition – three days of vigorous debates, punctuated by high-level keynotes from global medical leaders, sharing the stories behind the year’s studies and results.

European Council for Cardiovascular Research (ECCR)

20th Annual Meeting of the European Council for Cardiovascular Research (ECCR) 

Friday 14th – Sunday 16th October 2016

Lake Garda, Italy

All ECCR meetings aim to provide a forum for clinical and non-clinical researchers to present their research, and to foster the translation of novel basic science into best clinical practice. Emphasis is on all participants making a contribution, either orally or with a poster, with plenty of time set aside for discussion.

Creating, within Europe, a unique forum in the field of translational research on blood pressure and cardiovascular disease.

The 20th Annual Meeting in October 2016 will cover a broad range of subjects relevant to cardiovascular disease, including hypertension, vascular biology, platelets and thrombosis, diabetes and the metabolic syndrome, renal biology and dysfunction, cardiac biology and disease, and cardiovascular genetics as well as modern strategies of prevention and therapy in cardiovascular disease. Please see programme for more information.

The 2016 meeting is set to have an exciting schedule including new speakers from across the globe.

I look forward to welcoming you to another exciting and stimulating meeting at Poiano, Lake Garda, Italy, this October.

1st cohort of 2015 ADMIRE STSMs awarded

We have announced our first cohort of Short Term Scientific Mission (STSMs) awardees. To date in 2015 we have funded 8 STSMs who will travel from their home country to another country in the ADMIRE network for up to 3 months to learn new techniques and develop new collaborations.

We wish all of our STSMs good luck with their research projects! The next call for STSMs will open in May 2015
