Cardiovascular Disease Model Satellite 2022, 20th International SHR Symposium & 58th Japanese SHR Meeting

Welcome letter

Dear Colleagues and Friends

Cardiovascular disease model research has seen remarkable advances in the last decade. The technology is staggering, the magnitude of human studies is extraordinary, the sophistication of animal models is outstanding, and the revelations regarding the insights into the genomics and other omics are absolutely fascinating. Yet the future prospects are even more exciting. These will be core elements of the Cardiovascular Disease Model Satellite 2022, with the main theme “Innovative science of hypertension-related disease model towards precision medicine and prevention” to envision the future, building on today’s achievements. Cardiovascular Disease Model Satellite 2022 is an official investigator-led satellite to the International Society of Hypertension Meeting in October 2022 and we are delighted that it will also incorporate the 20th International SHR Symposium and the 58th Japanese SHR Meeting. We should like to welcome you most warmly to join us in Kyoto and be part of this stimulating meeting. The quality of our Committees and International Advisory Board will ensure that the research presented is at the forefront of the field. This will include the latest in genomics and other omics discovery, control and integration of gene expression, biomarkers, systems biology, pharmacogenomics, epigenetics and functional validation. The Satellite will span 1.5 days and will be held at Kyoto University on Sunday 16 and Monday 17 October 2022. You can fly into Osaka and connect with the ISH Meeting in Kyoto that are held on 12th –16th October. For overseas visitors, this is an opportunity to visit Kyoto, which is renowned for its beautiful gardens and temples, its traditional culture, and its world-class restaurants. The University is very close to the city centre and well served by public transport. As an Investigator-Led Satellite, we are keeping costs to minimum and you will find details regarding Abstract Submission, Registration and related matters on this website. We hope that you will join us in Kyoto for a memorable meeting and be part of future of Cardiovascular Disease Model Research.
