Getting ready for #xBio 2014 !

Experimental Biology is approaching ! I am looking forward to meet and chat with old friends, new friends, collaborators and future collaborators ! We have so much to talk about…the last few months have been really interesting in terms of cerebrovascular physiology !

Again, have a look at the exciting program from the International Research Network on Cerebral Hemodynamic Regulation (CARnet):

On a related note, we received our posters today !

My grad student Myriam will present a poster entitled Influence of dynamic cerebral autoregulation on presysncope in endurance athletes

I will present a poster entitled Middle cerebral artery mean flow velocity changes to non-pharmacologically induced hypertension and hypotension in humans

I am thinking of using this space to present and discuss results from Experimental Biology…Do you think it would be a good idea?

Are you attending EB2014 and interested in discussing your science here ? Just let me know !

See you in San Diego !

Interested in becoming a contributor ?

One of my goals when I started this blog was to develop an interactive site where grad students, postdoc and researchers in cerebrovascular physiology could discuss published papers, study designs and methods related to this research area.

Now, it would be really interesting if grad students, postdoc and researchers following this blog could contribute with guest posts !

So, if you would like to publish a post related to cerebrovascular physiology, just send me an email at lephysiologiste@gmail.com.

I am looking forward to hearing from you !
