The American Physiological Society’s (APS) Seventeenth International Conference on Endothelin (ET-17) will be held live virtually October 4–7, 2021. Conference registration, abstract submissions and award applications are now open.  Sign up for conference announcements to receive the latest information and stay in the know.

This biennial event is the premier forum for scientists to meet and discuss recent research developments in endothelin (ET)—an amino acid chain secreted by vascular endothelial cells—as well as clinical applications of blocking the ET system and the use of ET as a biomarker for disease.

The conference will strongly focus on the cardiovascular system in health and disease, with an emphasis on translating basic research to major clinical issues in:

  • hypertension,
  • myocardial infarction,
  • atherosclerosis,
  • renal failure,
  • diabetes, and
  • pulmonary hypertension.

The conference will feature presentations from leading ET authorities and will provide young investigators with professional development opportunities. Join us as we translate work by new investigators and students pursuing basic and clinical research in ET biology and relate these findings to major clinical issues in the cardiovascular and nervous systems, pulmonary and renal disease, diabetes, cancer and pain. The International Conference on Endothelin has a longstanding record of supporting trainee and junior investigator participation. Learn more about available trainee awards for ET-17.

Conference proceedings will be published in the Canadian Journal of Physiology and Pharmacology. Guest editors Michelle Gumz, PhD, and Kelly Hyndman, PhD, welcome review articles, mini-reviews and original ET-related research that will be reviewed for a special issue dedicated to ET-17.

On-demand content for this conference will be available to registrants through November 7, 2021.
