45th International Aldosterone Conference
Two Days of Powerful Talks
June 13 - 14, 2023
About the IAC
For over 40 years the IAC has remained the premier forum for the presentation and discussion of the latest research related to the study of aldosterone, corticosteroids, metabolizing enzymes and receptors in areas such as arterial and pulmonary hypertension, heart failure, atherosclerosis, and the metabolic syndrome.
It brings clinical, basic and translational researchers together to discuss the latest research in the field. This meeting is usually held annually as a satellite meeting of the Endocrine Society meeting.
The 45th International Aldosterone Conference meeting will take place in Chicago, IL and it will continue to provide the opportunity to meet and network with colleagues from across the world. The conference will feature a State-of-the-Art plenary lecture, free communications in oral and poster sessions, and a Young Investigators Award Program.
