Basic and Translation Research in Vascular Surgery

The 5th ESVS Spring meeting is being held in Leiden on 19th and 20th May 2017. This year there is a strong focus on basic and translational vascular research and cross-disciplinary work.

  • Last Spring, we came together in London for 2 days of lively discussions on leading research in vascular biology, novel materials and innovative devices covering all aspects of vascular disease. Previous participants updated us on the latest findings from their research programmes and new contributors introduced fresh topics and ideas, at high quality scientific and poster sessions.

    This year, we will continue to focus on basic and translational vascular research and would particularly encourage researchers to come with their teams and collaborators to present their cross-disciplinary work. The meeting will take a similar structure to previous years, starting on Friday through to Saturday afternoon, with key note lectures from international experts, oral and poster presentations. The Friday evening networking dinners have been great fun over the past 4 years and will clearly remain a vital aspect of the meeting.
