HYBRID MEETING 19th International Symposium on Atherosclerosis

ISA 2021


Hybrid Meeting

ISA2021 committee had carefully considered the ways of holding this symposium in response to the global impact of coronavirus (COVID-19).

Our top priority will always be the health and safety of the participants and invited faculty, as well as our dedicated corporate sponsors and staff.

After much careful deliberate consideration, ISA2021 committee decided to change the format to Hybrid format (onsite and online). We are planning the hybrid format to allow participants who are unable to attend on site from across the globe.

In the upcoming days we will be releasing further information about ISA 2021.

Until then, it is from the bottom of our hearts that we wish you safety, health, and peace of mind during these uncertain times.
