A joint symposium organized by the British Pharmacological Society and the British Microcirculation Society on 'New pharmacological targets in the microcirculation' will take place from 9.30am - 12.30pm on Thursday 19th December 2013.

This is one of the 10 symposia taking planned for Pharmacology 2013 - the next BPS annual winter meeting, to be held Tuesday 17th - Thursday 19th December, 2013  at the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre in London.

The following 5 themes will be addressed during the symposium:

- leukocyte trafficking through microvessels: emergence of novel anti-inflammatory therapeutic avenues by Professor Sussan Nourshargh, Queen Mary University of London
- new approaches for modulating retinal angiogenesis by Professor Alan Stitt, Queen’s University Belfast, UK;
- pharmacological approaches for reducing risk of microvascular stroke
syndromes by Professor Donald Singer, University of Warwick, UK
- microvascular targets in oncology by Professor Kristian Pietras, University of Lund, Sweden.

Abstracts are welcome for Pharmacology 2013 on this microcirculation theme, in addition to the wide range of themes relevant to the spectrum of pharmacology from bench to bedside, disease prevention and beyond.

Pharmacology 2013 (formerly the BPS Winter Meeting) attracts around 800 scientists each year, from throughour the UK, from across Europe and from overseas. The meeting includes a selection of topical symposia, plenary lectures, free oral communications and poster sessions which cover the many aspects of pharmacology from basic to clinical science.

Abstracts and registration for Pharmacology 2013 will open in early Autumn 2013.
