3rd Joint German Society for Microcirculation and Vascular Biology, and the Netherlands Vascular Biology Organisation (DEBS/MiVaB) meeting

3-5 November 2021, Göttingen, Germany

The third joint meeting of the Dutch and German Vascular Biology societies will bring together investigators from all fields of vascular biology for the exchange of new concepts and discussions of outstanding questions in the field. Presentations of the latest discoveries will be provided by internationally recognised scientists and emerging young stars.

The program consists of plenary sessions and poster sessions. Topics addressed include coronary angiogenesis, angiocrine signalling, lymphatics, mechano-sensing, neuro-vascular interactions, revascularization strategies, vascular adaptations in hypoxia & metabolic stress. We furthermore have dedicated sessions addressing novel developments in the field of systems biology - single cell sequencing, iPS technologies and cardiovascular organoids, and high-end imaging modalities for studying cellular behaviours.

At present 25 speakers confirmed their contribution, including the Nobel laureate Stephan Hell (see the attached flyer). Additional slots for oral presentations will be allocated based on selections from the submitted abstracts. Several travel grants, including the Aletta Jacobs award, and supported by the European Vascular Biology Organisation (EVBO) will be made available to junior researchers submitting their abstract to the meeting. https://gfmvb.com or https://debsociety.nl

ESM 2021 On-line Meeting 27th May

This one-day on-line meeting replaces the ESM2021 Aarhus, Denmark 4 day meeting (postponed until April 2023) due to the global coronavirus pandemic. The ESM Executive Committee and the Aarhus meeting organizing team acknowledged the importance of maintaining the visibility of the society and to encourage interactions with our European colleagues, resulting in the organization of this virtual event. The meeting will consist of two plenary speakers and 12 short oral presentations selected from the submitted abstracts, with a focus on presentations from our Early Career Researchers if possible. We have also included time for breakout discussion sessions both with a thematic focus (if possible) and for social interaction.

Date and Time: Thursday 27th May 2021; 9.15am-5.00pm CEST / 8.15am - 4.00pm BST
Abstract Deadline is 15th March 5pm CET (abstract instructions)
Registration is FREE

PhD position(s)

The dept. of Internal Medicine of Maastricht University Medical Center is looking for a PhD-student within an Innovative Training Network (ITN) funded by the European Commission. This network is named MINDSHIFT (Mechanistic Integration of vascular aND endocrine pathways for Subtyping Hypertension: an Innovative network approach for Future generation research Training).

In the project Metabolic drivers of hypertension: focus on the microcirculation, the candidate will identify circulating metabolic drivers of obesity-associated microcirculatory dysfunction and hypertension. A comprehensive analysis of detailed metabolic information will be instrumental in the metabolic and endocrine subtyping of overweight/obese, hypertensive patients. The candidate will use data of The Maastricht Study, a deep-phenotyped, population-based cohort that is enriched for individuals with type 2 diabetes.
This project is supervised by Prof. C.Stehouwer, Dr. A.Houben, Dr. M.van Greevenbroek. For more information click here, or mail to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

In MINDSHIFT a total of 15 projects have been defined. Please click here for all projects.

Hermann Rein Award 2019 for Mauro Siragusa from Frankfurt

At the 41st Annual Meeting of the German Society for Microcirculation and Vascular Biology in Heidelberg the Hermann Rein Prize was awarded. This is one of the highest awards in the field and sponsored by SERVIER Germany with 2000 €. The awardee is Dr. Mauro Siragusa (Goethe University Frankfurt) for his published work „Nitric oxide maintains endothelial redox homeostasis through PKM2 inhibition“ (EMBO J. 2019;38(17):e100938.).
The winners of the joint 2nd prize (Dr. Ludwig Weckbach/PD Dr. Ulrich Grabmaier, Munich, and Dr. Alice Plein/Prof. Dr. Alessandro Fantin, London/Milan) received 500 € from the German Society for Microcirculation and Vascular Biology.
