We are delighted to welcome you to the Leiden University Medical Centre for an in-person meeting on 28-29 October 2022. The meeting will follow a similar format to previous years, running from Friday until Saturday lunch time. There will be plenty of opportunities to discuss scientific developments and to catch up informally. 


It is apt for us to return to Leiden this year as it celebrates its status as European City of Science 2022. 


As before, the focus of our meeting is basic, fundamental and translational research in areas of cardiovascular biology, imaging, engineering, biomaterials and modelling. 


Please send in your abstracts - we are looking forward to hearing from established groups who have supported this meeting over the years as well as newer collaborations, some of which have arisen from our past meetings. 


We look forward to seeing you all!
