ESAO 2012 - Final Program Online!
Prof. Dr. Gustav Steinhoff, congress president of the XXXIX. ESAO Congress, invites you to Rostock on September 26th – 29th, 2012. The venue of the ESAO 2012 congress is the Academy of Music and Theatre, which resides in an old monastery in the city centre.
The motto of the ESAO Congress 2012 will be “from replacement to regeneration – from science to clinic”. The current state of organ assist and organ support allows for a rapidly advancing clinical practice for several hundred thousand patients worldwide.
The scientific program committee did select 59 keynote lectures of renowned international experts, 131 selected oral presentations and 101 poster presentations from worldwide scientific contributors. Nine poster presentations were selected for short oral presentation. We provide a clear program structure by highlighting one special organ system each congress day: heart/cardiovascular (Chair: G. Steinhoff) , liver (Chair: S. Mitzner) and kidney (Chair: W. Ramlow). The program comprises 45 oral and 2 poster sessions with cardiovascular, dialysis, biomaterials and apheresis topics (www.esao2012.org). Above all the congress program integrates aspects of both basic science and clinical development with a clear focus on translation and clinical practice. We intend to host you on an excellent and exciting congress by inviting outstanding experts and by giving young and promising clinicians and scientists the opportunity to present their work. Especially for young scientists there will be one day for yESAO activities (Tuesday, Sept. 25, 2012). Industry symposia, a poster exhibition and an industrial exhibition will complete the congress program.
We are looking forward to seeing you in Rostock 2012.
