On behalf of the organizing committee, we would like to thank everyone who attended the 13th HHT International Scientific Conference. For the first time at an HHT Conference, voices were heard from six continents, motivating interest for those new to the field, and encouraging young researchers and clinicians to continue to build a career surrounding HHT. The attendance of young scientists was at an all-time high and the conference was buzzing with the excitement of knowledge and opportunity – a buzz that could literally be heard during breaks and mealtimes when researchers and clinicians stood together plotting the destruction of HHT.
It was amazing to see the array of presentations, posters and collaboration come together and contribute to our global understanding of HHT. Oral Presentation Abstracts, Poster Presentation Abstracts and an Executive Summary of the talks and workshops will be published in the October/November issue of Angiogenesis. Cure HHT will also host a webinar this fall to review the highlights of the conference, with hopes that the knowledge gained from this meeting will spread and reach all corners of the HHT community. In the meantime, check out the Basic Science Summary Presentation presented by Dr. Carmelo Bernabeu and the Clinical Science Summary Presentation presented by Dr. Urban Geisthoff.
And finally, we’d like to give an enthusiastic thank you to everyone who contributed to this conference both scientifically and financially. Your dedication to this community had a direct impact on Cure HHT’s ability to provide attendees with a rich and fulfilling experience. Your contributions are deeply appreciated by all!
