Dear Colleagues

We are delighted to invite you to the 3rd edition of the Joint AGLA & Cardiovascular Biology Meeting being now termed Cardiovascular and Metabolic Research Conference and held at the University Campus in Fribourg on January 16th and 17th 2014.

Following our tradition representatives of the Working Group on Lipids and Atherosclerosis and the Cardiovascular Biology Working Group have planned an exciting programme consisting of plenary sessions with keynote lectures and free communications as well as poster sessions.

The opening lecture will be held by Ulf Landmesser from the University of Zurich on his investigations aimed at understanding cardiovascular repair and finding novel approaches to treat cardiovascular disease. Eric Raddatz from Lausanne will present the outcome of many years of basic research on the physiopathology of the embryonic heart. The scientific programme will be concluded by Stephanie Dimmeler from the Institute of Cardiovascular Regeneration in Frankfurt who will present the role of microRNAs in cardiovascular disease.

As usual we scheduled several poster presentations and free communication sessions to make sure that there is enough time and room for young investigators to present their latest scientific findings. And last but not least we shall award prizes to the best oral presentation and the best three posters.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Fribourg in January 2014 to a fruitful and enriching exchange among established experts and promising young researchers. Please register today by using the enclosed application form or online.

On behalf of the scientific committee
