NAVBO - Vascular Biology 2018

NAVBO - Vascular Biology 2018 will be held October 14-18, 2018 in Newport, RI.
Abstract submission deadline is August 1
Early bird registration deadline is August 15

Vascular Biology 2018 will deliver presentations by highly acclaimed experts in cardiovascular biology.  The unique cross-disciplinary approach will provide a forum where basic and clinical researchers in these complementary areas of vascular biology can interact.  The program is characterized by the presentation of cutting edge research in areas including vascular permeability, lymphatics, leukocyte-endothelial cell interactions, angiogenesis, vascular remodeling, lipid metabolism, non-coding RNAs, vessel morphogenesis, vascular malformations, vein graft and arteriovenous fistula failure, extracellular vesicles, and cardiovascular omics.  These topics are highly relevant in furthering our understanding and developing much-needed new therapies for vascular and inflammatory diseases.
