Welcome

curehhtOn behalf of the Organizing Committee, we would like to invite you to join us in Dubrovnik, Croatia for the 12th International HHT Scientific Conference. We will host a Welcome Reception on June 7th and scientific sessions on June 8-11, 2017.  The 2017 meeting will bring together the world’s leading HHT experts in both basic research as well as clinical practice and will focus on translating findings between these fields.

Basic research is the engine that drives discovery of new drugs and therapies, but it relies on constant input and feedback from clinicians. Results of clinical research provide new insights in the best ways to diagnose and treat HHT.

The biennial meeting is a must-attend event for both established and early-stage researchers, as well as clinicians experienced in treating HHT, and those just entering the field of HHT. The program will feature several outstanding keynote speakers, multiple cross-disciplinary sessions and extensive opportunities for presenting and viewing posters and for interdisciplinary discussions.

The “Pearl of the Adriatric”, known for pale blue water and magnificent walls surrounding its distinguished Old Town Dubrovnik will be the venue for this year’s conference. The Radisson Blu Resort & Spa, Dubrovnik Sun Gardens, an exotic 5-star resort on the shores of the Adriatic Sea, offers guests an unmatched combination of culture and beauty.  This is a great place for kids and families so bring everyone. The beauty and tranquility of your surroundings will only enhance the 3 and ½ days of collegial and stimulating HHT talks and poster sessions that we have planned for you!
