What's new in the BVSsm

The main goal of the BVS Spring Meeting is to provide an annual European forum for the communication and discussion of basic science research in the vascular field.


We aim to promote interaction between vascular biologists, vascular engineers and clinicians, enabling their discoveries to enhance our understanding and ultimately the management of vascular diseases.


Meetings will be held in London, Frankfurt and Leiden which have proven to be inspiring and friendly settings for senior and early career researchers; clinicians, academic and industry based scientists.
