Upcoming: ISOTT 2015
The 43rd Annual Meeting of the International Society on Oxygen Transport to Tissue (ISOTT) will be held at the Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST) in Wuhan, China on July 11-16, 2015.
This ISOTT meeting will have two days of overlap (July 12-13) with the 13th International Conference on Photonics and Imaging in Biology and Medicine (PIBM 2015). The combined sessions will focus on novel optical imaging methods for measuring oxygen transport to tissue and their clinical translations.
In the tradition of the ISOTT society, the annual meeting will bring together physiologists, biochemists, clinicians, physicists, engineers, and mathematicians in a unique forum for discussions on a broad range of topics on oxygen in health and disease and in various organs of the body.
The keynote talks will be given by experts in fields such as mitochondria and cancer, oxidative stress, oxygen metabolism, microcirculation and hemorheology, haemodynamic brain-computer interface, and intensive care medicine.
The conference will cover all aspects of oxygen transport to tissue and may include but are not limited to the following topics: cellular hypoxia and mitochondria; blood substitutes and oxygen therapeutics; oxygen transport in critical care medicine and disease; muscle oxygenation; high altitude and hypoxia; multi modal imaging techniques; brain oxygenation and imaging; optical techniques for oxygen measurement; mathematical modeling; microcirculation; organ function and metabolism; cancer metabolism; Acupuncture, Primo Vascular System (PVS) and Meridians.
This exciting scientific program will be matched by social events held in one of the most active National Innovation Demonstration Zones in China, including tours of the BioLake and Future City in Wuhan Optics Valley of China, and a dinner cruise along the Yangtze River.
We very much look forward to seeing you in Wuhan and enjoying a scientifically and socially stimulating ISOTT!
