PVRI Annual World Congress in Miami 2017

After the success of 2016, we have an even more exciting programme for 2017.

The 11th Annual World Congress registration is now open. The Congress will be held in Miami, USA in January 2017 - with the scientific organising committee led by Stephen Archer & Kurt Stenmark. 

The event

The event will be held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Miami, USA.

Our Congress in 2017 includes a full 4-day program including a Gala Dinner and one day for pre-meetings scheduled for PVRI Task Forces, which offers the chance for young scientists to network with leaders in the field. 

The meeting features new Named Lectureships honouring pioneers in the field. It also offers new formats for oral presentations and poster sessions, including debates, a session on "What's New/What's Hot?" and moderated poster sessions, where each presenter has the opportunity to present their work to the group. Every poster presenter gets three minutes.

Experts present case management of complex PH cases and scientists discuss stem cells, lung development and regeneration, oxygen sensing and inflammation. The latest advances in imaging and therapy for PAH are reviewed. 

Please note that delegates attending from outside of the United States will need a VISA in addition to the event registration. For VISA invitation letters please email our CEO, Stephanie at:


All sessions allow for active delegate debate and there will be an opportunity to take advantage of organised sightseeing tours around Miami.
