The Gordon Research Seminar on Angiotensin is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.
The focus of this meeting will be on therapies targeting the new components of the RAS; bridging the gap between basic research and clinical efficacy in pathological conditions, such as in diabetes and obesity, hypertension, aging, heart and renal failure, and auto-immune diseases.
