Conference

The 3rd Immuno-Metabolic Mechanisms of Atherosclerosis Conference
1st – 4th May 2022
Scientific Chairs Christoph Binder (Medical University of Vienna), Ziad Mallat (University of Cambridge) & Eicke Latz (University of Bonn) are coming together once again to host the 3rd Immuno-Metabolic Mechanisms of Atherosclerosis Conference. The meeting will be taking place in person from 01-04 May 2022 at the Fiesta Americana Tulkal Riviera Maya, Mexico.
Building on the success of the previous meetings, the main goal of this meeting is to provide attendees with a comprehensive overview of current research on atherosclerosis with a focus on the latest and most exciting developments in the immuno-metabolic mechanisms that govern disease initiation and progression. There is little doubt that the next most exciting therapy to combat cardiovascular disease will be based on targeting biological pathways that will have been discussed during this conference.

Seven sessions are planned and will highlight the following major research areas:

  • Cellular vessel wall and plaque diversity
  • Lipids and lipoproteins in inflammation
  • Cellular lipid metabolism and immunity
  • Innate immunity, neutrophil and macrophage biology
  • Adaptive immune mechanisms
  • Immunometabolism and leukocytes
  • Neuroimmune signaling
  • Systems analyses
  • Human translational studies and clinical trials

The deadlines for submitting a talk or a poster are as follows:

  • Talk submission: 15th November 2021
  • Poster submission: 4th March 2022

The Cardiorenal Forum (CRF) is an independent group formed in 2006. The key objective of the group is to highlight the important clinical overlap that exists between patients presenting with a primary cardiovascular or renal problem. Our annual scientific meeting is our main event to bring together all involved in the management of such patients to share ideas and learn more about how to deliver high quality care. In 2020 we are delighted to be rolling out practical digital activities to focus on challenging aspects of managing cardiorenal patients
