Welcome to the 2018 Congress on Open Issues in Thrombosis and Hemostasis
together with the 9th Russian Conference on Clinical Hemostasiology and Hemorheology
It is our great honor and privilege to invite you to the Joint Meeting of the Congress on Open Issues in Thrombosis and Hemostasis 2018 jointly with the 9th Russian Conference on Clinical Hemostasiology and Hemorheology. We are excited to update you on the progress in the preparation for this congress. The interdisciplinary nature of thrombosis and hemostasis indicates that a close interaction and communication between specialists is essential. The rapid expansion of knowledge (both basic and clinical) in the field of thrombosis and hemostasis, prompted us to convene this Congress in St.Petersburg next year.
The meeting is a joint project of two teams Russian and international with the aim to prepare unique scientific programme based on lectures, presentations and discussion. As always, the principal goal is to foster new collaborations in a friendly atmosphere and a relaxed environment. We believe that St.Petersburg will satisfy both the desire to visit an attractive city and the adequate meeting venue. In keeping with the tradition of Russian hospitality, we invite you to enjoy the Social Program of the Congress.
Stay tuned for more news and previews of the sessions by visiting the completely renovated website of the meeting:
The meeting is scheduled for October 4-6, 2018, so please save these dates on your calendars.
We look forward to seeing you in St. Petersburg!
