We are pleased to invite you to attend the 10th International Symposium on Resistance Arteries (ISRA) which will be held from Sunday 8th to Thursday 12th May 2011 at Comwell Rebild Bakker, Rebild, Denmark.

This conference follows on from previous highly successful ISRA meetings, which have traditionally provided outstanding opportunities to discuss and develop resistance artery research. Themes of the symposium will include vascular biology of the endothelium and the smooth muscle, control of vascular tone and vascular structure, intercellular communication, reactive oxygen species, inflammation, hypertension and diabetes and manipulation of endothelial and smooth muscle gene expression.

The programme will include overview lectures and presentations selected on the basis of the incoming abstracts. We welcome abstracts for both oral and poster presentations to enable participation by all registrants. The presentation of data at this meeting will provide the opportunity for scientific interaction and discussion with a highly informed audience.

Prizes will be awarded for the best oral and best poster presentation.

The congress activities will take place at Comwell Rebild Bakker, a purpose built hotel and conference centre set in one of Denmark’s national parks. It is conveniently located near Aalborg and offers recreational facilities as well as access to the beautiful countryside, featuring the Rold Forest, Denmark’s largest forest area.
