Our 2020 Annual World Congress will be held in Lima, Peru

We're pleased to announce that the 14th PVRI Annual World Congress on Pulmonary Vascular Disease will be held in Lima, Peru, from 30 January until 2 February 2020. Pre-meetings will take place on 29 January 2020.

Machu Picchu is an Incan citadel set high in the Andes Mountains in Peru, above the Urubamba River valley. It was declared a Peruvian Historic Sanctuary in 1981 and a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983. Built in the 15th century and later abandoned, it’s renowned for its sophisticated dry-stone walls that fuse huge blocks without the use of mortar, intriguing buildings that play on astronomical alignments and panoramic views. Its exact former use remains a mystery.

Preliminary scientific agenda

Our Scientific Organising Committee has followed the successful programme format of our 2019 Congress, which offers even more possibility for discussion between speakers and the audience. We encourage networking between emerging and senior researchers, as well as stimulating interactions between basic and clinical research. 15 Travel Grants will be awarded for outstanding abstracts submitted.

The programme offers insights into cutting edge topics that cover local and global needs. We will round-up with pro and con debates. Importantly, our translational-oriented approach will reflect PVD research from bench to bedside and back. Keynote speakers will cover PVD-related fields, thereby opening new scientific horizons for all of us.

We are delighted to announce that this year's organising committee will comprise:

  • Max Gassmann (Chair), University of Zurich, Switzerland
