ESC Congress 2020 – Local Drug Therapies for Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD)

Join CBSET at the ESC Congress 2020 digital conference, August 29-September 1, 2020. This is expected to be the largest online gathering of cardiovascular professionals. The conference will include the  latest cardiovascular research in over 500 sessions with faculty, composed of over 750 experts from 49 countries.

In an effort to further support healthcare professionals around the world, the ESC has decided, exceptionally for 2020, to offer complimentary registration to this unique event. The digital event is available at no charge but pre-registration is mandatory.

Please contact us to schedule an e-meeting around the ESC Congress 2020 with the researchers and authors behind some of the most advanced preclinical models for PAD in the field.
