See you in Barcelona for FCVB 2014!

We would like to thank the more than 900 participants who joined us in London for FCVB 2012, submitting over 600 original abstracts, and we look forward to meeting again in July 2014 in the capital of Catalonia, Barcelona, Spain.

Our third Frontiers in CardioVascular Biology meeting (FCVB 2014) is being shaped after the two previous successful experiences of Berlin and London. The Core Scientific Committee, the Programme Committee and the Local Organising Committee take pleasure in organising a meeting that will bring the best and most novel cardiovascular science to participants.  Read more...
