The Renin Angiotensin System in Health and Disease: Latest Advances and New Technologies


February 20-21, 2016


Renaissance Tuscany Il Ciocco
Lucca (Barga), Italy


Kirsty G. Pringle & Rodrigo Fraga-Silva

Meeting Description

The Gordon Research Seminar on Angiotensin is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.

In 2016, the theme of the meeting will be on research translation and how to get your ideas to the market to improve clinical outcomes. The meeting will showcase the latest advances in the field as well as new technologies for research and will cover a wide range of topics including inflammation, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, reproduction/pregnancy and cancer.
