The third joint meeting between the German Society for Microcirculation and Vascular Biology, and the Netherlands Vascular Biology Organisation (DEBS/MiVaB) will be held from 3-5 November 2021 in Göttingen, Germany.
The third joint meeting of the Dutch and German Vascular Biology societies will bring together investigators from all fields of vascular biology for the exchange of new concepts and discussions of outstanding questions in the field. Presentations of the latest discoveries will be provided by internationally recognised scientists and emerging young stars. The program consists of plenary sessions and poster sessions. Topics addressed include coronary angiogenesis, angiocrine signalling, lymphatics, mechano-sensing, neuro-vascular interactions, revascularization strategies, vascular adaptations in hypoxia & metabolic stress. We furthermore have dedicated sessions addressing novel developments in the field of systems biology - single cell sequencing, iPS technologies and cardiovascular organoids, and high-end imaging modalities for studying cellular behaviours.
At present 25 speakers confirmed their contribution, including the Nobel laureate Stephan Hell. Additional slots for oral presentations will be allocated based on selections from the submitted abstracts. Several travel grants, including the Aletta Jacobs award, and supported by the European Vascular Biology Organisation (EVBO) will be made available to junior researchers submitting their abstract to the meeting.
