We are delighted to announce the 14th international symposium on Biomechanics in Vascular Biology and Cardiovascular Disease, which will be held in London, UK, on April 11-12 2019.

Over the years, the symposium was successful in bridging the gap between biomechanics, vascular biology and clinical research.

This year, the scientific program of the symposium will not only cover aspects of vascular biology and clinical research related to biomechanics, but will be structured around Controversies in Science. Scientific discussions are the best way to generate new ideas, and we would like to focus on this aspect more strongly. To meet our goal, each session will bring together at least two internationally renowned scientists, each with controversial ideas around the topic. The oral sessions will be complemented with a selection from submitted abstracts. Furthermore, a poster session will be organised and there will be a Young Investigators Award.

We hope to welcome you to London in 2019 for an inspiring 14th symposium on Biomechanics in Vascular Biology and Cardiovascular Disease.
