Meet the experts@lunch

Parallel sessions

  • Session 1 "The clinical track"-workshop: basic scientists will learn more about clinical symptoms, parameters, and physiology and their connection to mechanisms of remodelling

    Workshop leaders: Peter Sterk, Amsterdam, the Netherlands and Gert-Jan Braunstahl, Rotterdam, the Netherlands
  • Session 2 "The biomedical track"-workshop: clinical researchers/doctors will learn about the use of in vivo/in vitro models to study physiology, pathology and remodelling

    Workshop leaders: Machteld Hylkema, Groningen, the Netherlands and Pieter Hiemstra, Leiden, the Netherlands
