International Vascular Biology Meeting 2018

Dear Colleagues,

The Organizing Committee is very happy to announce the International Vascular Biology Meeting 2018 (IVBM2018), to be held in Helsinki, Finland on June 3-7, 2018.

The IVBM2018 will bring together investigators from all fields of vascular biology, to the exchange of ideas, discussions of burning issues and presentations of the latest concepts and discoveries by internationally recognized scientists and young stars of the future. The program consists of two plenary sessions per day, parallel symposia, poster sessions, and meet the experts mixers, located adjacent to the symposium exhibition.

The meeting creates a great opportunity to experience the Scandinavian culture, nature and cuisine. In the beginning of June, Helsinki, one of Scandinavia’s major capitals, is buzzing with light and life – the Nordic white night when the sun sets only for a moment brings out the magic in the city and its people. Summer is also the best time for tasting of local and Nordic cuisine’s seasonal ingredients fresh from the nature.


We look forward to seeing you all in 2018!
