Dear Colleagues and Friends:
As Chair and Co-chair of The 42nd International Aldosterone Conference (IAC) we are proud to announce, after the success of last year in Boston, our next Annual Meeting, which will take place in the sunny Orlando, March 30-31 2017. The IAC meeting will feature Plenary Lecturers, free communications in oral and poster sessions, and a Young Investigators Award Program.
Over the past forty years the IAC meeting has become the “premier forum” for new findings in the fields of aldosterone, corticosteroids, metabolizing enzymes and receptors (basic, clinical and translational) in areas such as arterial and pulmonary hypertension, heart failure, atherosclerosis, and the metabolic syndrome.
A joint lecture with the Vitamin D Workshop has also become a tradition with outstanding state-of-the-art lectures. The 2017 Lecture, given by Victor Corces of Emory University on Friday morning, will be on “Higher order structure and chromosomal organization in the nucleus,” a topic of broad interest for all of us, as the MR (like the VDR) is a nuclear receptor.
For many years attendance to the IAC was by personal invitation only. From 2005 on, we have enjoyed sponsorships and allowed the meeting to be open to all who are interested- from Universities, Hospitals, Research Institutes and Industry.
Please mark your calendar and plan to attend!
Please also spread the word to your colleagues who may be interested in attending.
We look forward very much to the pleasure of seeing you in Orlando next March.
With kindest personal regards,
Gian Paolo Rossi (Chair)
Matt Luther (Co-chair)
