We would like to invite you to a one day symposium on acute vascular disease at the Richard Doll Building on Thursday 23rd November 2017. The day will consist of neuro and cardiac themed talks that span development / validation and applications in clinical research.
We are delighted to welcome Prof Michael Hill (University of Calgary, Canada) to present the second Sir Paul Nurse lecture as part of the symposium.
AVIC was formally opened on October 15th 2012 by Sir Paul Nurse. Following on from the success of the day which included an afternoon of lectures, a biennial symposium was established to reflect on the work carried out in AVIC and to look forward to future developments. The day to end with a guest speaker, the lecture being named after Sir Paul Nurse in recognition of the support he had given AVIC.
The first symposium was held in October 2015 and Professor Valentin Fuster (Mount Sinai Hospital, USA) presented the inaugural Sir Paul Nurse lecture - 'From the vulnerable plaque to the burden of disease'.
The symposium is open to all, it is free of charge and includes a buffet lunch and tea/coffee. Registration is required to ensure adequate catering and places are limited (a waiting list will be maintained). Please let me know if you subsequently are unable to attend after you have registered.
To register, please e-mail Carol Davey to confirm attendance and include the following details:
- Full name
