ESM 2021 On-line Meeting 27th May

The biennial ESM General Assembly preceded the ESM2021 On-line meeting and was attended by a record number of 122 members! ESM2021 was a huge success, with more than 300 registrants from 17 countries including the USA and Canada. Our two plenary speakers Markus Sperandio and Joanna Kalucka gave inspiring presentations and the parallel sessions for the short oral presentations were terrific, with impressive science and lively discussions. The meeting abstracts will be published in a supplement of the Journal of Vascular Research in due course.

We thank all who participated and contributed to this really excellent meeting!
