Are you focused on APPLIED vascular biology?  Do you sometimes feel lost in these huge vascular meetings?  No matter if you are studying a clinically available device or developing the next tissue-engineered heart, the ISACB meeting is for you!  Known for their convivial atmospheres, ISACB meetings bring together pioneers and tought leaders from all areas of the vascular field.  These single-track meetings are designed to promote discussions between academia and industry, between super stars and rising stars, and between physician and scientists.  This Euro-centric 2018 edition will be held in Bordeaux and promises to be a remarkable event. Come enjoy the warm September weather and take a walk along the Garonne River. Historic Bordeaux is a UNESCO world heritage site filled with picturesque streets and fantastic restaurants.  Visit the new interactive wine museum La Cité du Vin or take a short trip outside the city to visit directly the vineyards brimming with ripe grapes in world-renowned place like Saint-Émilion, Sauternes, or Margaux.  Taste these fabulous wines with French cuisine including local specialties such as foie gras, duck, fish or oysters from the near-by Bassin d’Arcachon bay. The 2018 Bordeaux meeting will be a meeting to remember both from a scientific and social perspective.


About the International Society for Applied Cardiovascular Biology

In 1987, a small group of cardiovascular surgeons, cardiologists, and vascular biologists met in Cape Town to commemorate the 20th anniversary celebration of the first heart transplant. It was at this meeting that the International Society for Applied Cardiovascular Biology (ISACB) was conceived with the election of Allan Callow as the first president of the Society. Since this first meeting, ISACB has grown into an international society with a diverse membership of physician scientists and researchers across the cardiovascular spectrum and has held 15 biennial meetings throughout North America and Europe. ISACB is unique among cardiovascular societies in both its applied mission and international scope. ISACB exists to promote the development and implementation of applied cardiovascular biology discoveries and to encourage international collaborations. Sub-committees within North America, Europe, and Asia facilitate our international efforts. The biennial ISACB meetings offer intimate settings and feature premier cardiovascular researchers as invited speakers along with junior researchers from around the globe, promoting mentorship and networking opportunities. Quarterly webinars allow researchers within the society to reach a large global audience and bridge the discussions between the biennial meetings. Members of ISACB include academic scientists and engineers, clinicians, and industry representatives. This diverse membership allows vertical integration of session in webinars and meetings that highlight the strengths and differences in approach from basic research to industrial development to clinical implementation.
