The HHT International Scientific Conference is hosted and sponsored by Cure HHT. The Conference Organizing Committee invites authors to submit abstracts to be considered for inclusion in the Scientific Program for either oral or poster presentations.
The conference sessions will be organized around the themes of Mechanism, Diagnosis, Treatment, Genetics, Drug Discovery, and Epidemiology, however, other topics of research are encouraged and welcomed for submission. Within each of these themes we will bring together basic scientists and clinicians, in the hope of stimulating and educating both.
Abstracts should only include original data. Case reports must be submitted for poster presentation.
If you have any problems with the abstract submission process, please contact Nicole Schaefer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Outstanding Oral Presentation and Poster Awards will be presented to Residents, Postdoctoral/Clinical Fellows, PhD Candidates or Early Stage Investigators for outstanding presentation of their abstracts. Awardees are selected on site and award recipients were announced during the last session on Sunday, June 11, 2017. These awards include a certificate and monetary award of $250.00 (US).
Cure HHT was honored to provide prizes for the best young scholar presentations. Congratulations to our winners!
