3rd Okanagan Cardiovascular and Respiratory Symposium

Below is a message from Neil Eves and Phil Ainslie, regarding the 3rd Okanagan Cardiovascular and Respiratory Symposium. Make sure to attend !

Dear friends and colleagues

We are happy to announce the 3rd Okanagan Cardiovascular and Respiratory Symposium being held by the Centre for Heart, Lung and Vascular Health at the Silver Star Mountain Resort, British Columbia, Canada (15-17th March 2018).

The Okanagan Cardiovascular and Respiratory Symposium is a small conference, held biennially, with the content covering a range of research in human cardio-respiratory and vascular physiology.  The initial two meetings were a considerable success with a lot of very high calibre presentations from renowned physiologists as well as emerging scientists and trainees.

The primary focus of the conference is on student development and the promotion of excellence in integrative physiology.  We have again invited some of the world’s most eminent cardiovascular and respiratory physiologists to give keynotes (Keynote speakers: Prof. Michael Joyner, Prof. Benjamin Levine and Prof. Susan Hopkins), to lead symposiums (Prof. Kevin Shoemaker, Prof. Maureen MacDonald, Prof. Rob Shave, Prof. Bill Sheel and Dr. Chris West) but also encourage trainees and scientists of all levels to submit their work to initiate discussion and get feedback in what we hope is a relatively informal scientific environment.

The preliminary program and information on registration, abstract submission and hotel bookings will be released in the near future but we ask you keep the dates available if you are interested in attending.

Please pass this email on to your trainees and any other individuals who may be interested in attending. We hope that you can join us in British Columbia in March next year.


Neil, Phil, Nia and Audrey (Organizing Committee)
