International workshop - "New insights in mechanisms of vascular diseases"

5/20/2005 - 5/21/2005
Baveno (Verbania) (Italy)

Dear Participants, as Honorary President, I am very happy to welcome you to this important international workshop on "New insights in mechanisms of vascular diseases". New Insights in Mechanisms of Vascular Diseases Page 2 of 4 http://www.fondazione-menarini.it/congressi/archivio/programma52.htm 30/04/2012 The arguments of this meeting are very interesting for science and the human kind, still distressed by vascular diseases. Much work has been done in order to improve the quality of life for patients, and reduce the consequences of vascular diseases such as atherosclerosis, ischemia and immune diseases by having long remissions. However, it is my opinion that further efforts should be addressed to this, and I am sure that this meeting will offer, by discussing the molecular mechanisms underlying vascular diseases, new insights presented by outstanding scientists, and will give substantial contribution to the matter. The workshop is composed of three sessions based on these main topics: the pathogenic mechanisms of vascular diseases, the immunological mechanisms of vascular diseases, and the novel challenges in these disorders. Novel gene therapy-based approaches to vascular damage will be also discussed. Master Lectures will cover the nitric oxide-mediated signalling, and novel issues in the pathobiology of nitric oxide. Special meetings with Editors of Scientific Journals of Excellence (Nature Medicine and EMBO Journal) will finally play the vascular damage. Therefore, I would like to thank the Excellence Research Center on Cardiovascular Diseases, School of Medicine, Second University of Naples, and the Fondazione Internazionale Menarini for organizing this highly scientific workshop on vascular diseases. Looking forward to seeing you in Baveno, 

Francesco Rossi The Honorary President
