5th EU-CARDIOPROTECTION COST Action MC and WG Meeting, September 16-18, 2019 in Oslo

Welcome to the 5th EU-CARDIOPROTECTION COST Action MC and WG Meeting, September 16-18th, 2019 in Oslo, Norway at Oslo University Hospital Rikshospitalet!

The first day of the meeting is a workshop on animal models and co-morbidities, which is an exciting topic for every researcher in targeting cardiac ischemia/reperfusion injury and will give valuable insights when choosing your cardioprotection model for both established and young scientists.

The following two days will be held several key-notes by internationally recognised speakers about H2S, macrophages, inflammasomes, OMICS and microvasculature in cardiac ischemia-reperfusion injury in addition to discussion of specific projects aiming at cardioprotection.

Please find the preliminary program here.

The scientific program will be accompanied by a rich social program, which is included in the registration fee (in addition to lunches and breaks during the meeting)!
