ESC Working Group on Atherosclerosis & Vascular Biology

Dear members of the ESC Working Group on Atherosclerosis and Vascular Biology,

The ESC congress is approaching, and we would like to encourage you to take this opportunity to get insights into recent advances in translational cardiovascular science. Below are some suggestions for session within the scope of our WG, but the congress indeed also offers several other possibilities for an integrated experience from clinical cardiology to vascular biology.

If you have any ideas or suggestions for how our Working Group can continue to promote vascular biology and atherosclerosis within the ESC, do not hesitate to contact us.

Hoping to meet you in person at the Networking Reception and Award Ceremony at ESC Congress (Monday 2 September 17:00 CEST).

On behalf of the Working Group Nucleus,
