Asia Pacific Vascular Biology Organization Conference 2017
Dear Colleagues and Friends,
On behalf of the Asia-Pacific Vascular Biology Organization (APVBO), we are delighted to welcome you to our first APVBO meeting in Guangzhou, China. Vascular Biology is a vibrant discipline that is establishing itself as an important translational research platform across all fields of medicine. The goal of APVBO is to promote vascular biology research, advance practical application of new discoveries, and facilitate education and training in this discipline across the Asia-Pacific region.
This APVBO meeting brings together a diverse group of scientists, physicians and industry leaders from across the Asia-Pacific area, Europe and America. It is our hope that it will lay the foundation for new contacts and collaborations between the newly emerging and established labs and promote academia-industry contact that are vital to effective implementation of scientific advances.
Guangzhou is the third largest city on the southern coastline of China. Being a pioneer of the economic development in China and a neighbor of Hong Kong and Macau, Guangzhou serves as a commercial, scientific, educational and cultural center of Southern China. We hope that you will enjoy the great food, natural beauty, and the vibrant night life of this thriving metropolis.
We wish you a productive and enjoyable conference!
