2014 EACPT Focus Meeting: ‘Drugs to Fight Cardiovascular Damage’ 3-5 July, 2014

Following the well-attended EACPT international summer school in 2013 in Edinburgh, the next European Association for Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics [EACPT] update for young researchers is the 2014 EACPT Focus Meeting on  ‘Drugs to Fight Cardiovascular Damage’.

The 2014 EACPT Focus Meeting takes place from July 3rd – 5th at the Radboud University Medical

Radboud University Medical Centre, Nijmegen

Center in Nijmegen in the Netherlands. 

This EACPT cardiovascular focus meeting is of interest to clinical pharmacologists, pharmacologists, and other young scientists and clinicians interested in drug treatment of cardiovascular disease. 

Topics include: 
– ultrasound imaging of vascular injury (including a workshop tproviding t hands-on training),
– the microbiome and inflammation in the metabolic syndrome
– targeting inflammation to prevent and treat atherosclerosis
– diagnosis and therapy of adrenal hypertension
– protection against ischaemia-reperfusion injury.
