It is with great pleasure that we invite you to join our 3rd International Symposium of the Collaborative Research Center/Transregio TRR 259 on “New mechanistic insights into aortic diseases“, which will take place from March 23 – 25, 2022 in Bonn, Germany.

The TRR259 is a Collaborative Research Center funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) at the Universitites of Bonn, Cologne, and Düsseldorf. In a multidisciplinary effort, we are investigating the molecular and cellular mechanisms of aortic disease holistically, with a particular focus on aortic valve stenosis, aortic
aneurysm, and aortic dissection. We aim to identify novel pharmacological, interventional, and surgical targets for new diagnostic, preventive, and
therapeutic strategies within the frame of translational and clinical studies.
For the 3rd International Symposium of the TRR259 in 2022, world-class scientists, clinicians, and students, will share their experiences and results of research into the basic mechanisms of the development of aortic wall and valve disease. The International Symposium 2022 will not only showcase the latest research data, but also foster discussion and interaction between aortic researchers, and will be a unique opportunity to initiate and intensify collaborative projects. The theme of this event will be “New mechanistic insights into aortic diseases”.
We look forward to welcoming you in Bonn for this exciting conference on aortic diseases!
