ISOTT 2017, Halle, Germany
In 2017 we would like to invite you to the 45th Annual Meeting of the International Society on Oxygen Transport to Tissue (ISOTT) at the Martin-Luther-University in Halle (Saale), Germany. The meeting will probably be held on August 19-23, 2017. Please mark the meeting website at http://isott2017.org.
Halle is located in the center of Germany, 160 km south of Berlin and 40 km west of Leipzig, at the banks of the beautiful river Saale. The city is full of cultural highlight since it is the native town of Georg Friedrich Händel and the place where the 3600 year old sky disk ("Himmelsscheibe") is exhibited or where the Francke Foundations ("Franckesche Stiftungen") are located.
The meeting will address a broad spectrum of aspects of oxygen transport to tissue. Major topics will be the dynamics of oxygen transport, microcirculation and vascular medicine, O2 deficiency and its impact on molecular processes in cells and tissues, cellular metabolism and mitochondrial function, multimodal functional imaging, mathematical modeling and the clinical relevance of oxygen supply as well as therapeutic interventions (e.g. in oncology or critical care medicine).
Since ISOTT is a multi-disciplinary society we invite physiologists, biochemists, clinicians, physicists, engineers, mathematicians and scientists from any other field for an intensive discussion on any aspect of oxygen transport to tissue in health and disease in cells or organs of the body.
A warm welcome awaits you to spend a scientifically fruitful and enjoyable time at Halle (Saale) for ISOTT 2017.
Oliver Thews, President of ISOTT 2017
