EAS Congress in Gothenburg, June 26-29
Date:6/27/2011

Many of the most prominent international scientists in the field of atherosclerosis, including scientists from the Sahlgrenska Academy, University of Gothenburg, will attend the EAS Congress in Gothenburg, 26-29 June. They will discuss recent advances in the prevention and treatment of atherosclerosis and associated diseases, such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease and stroke.

Young scientists will have the chance to meet some of the leading researchers in the field, informally and personally. Practical aspects of treatment and diagnosis will also be discussed in several sessions at the congress.

One of the younger scientists from the Sahlgrenska Academy is Fredrik Bckhed, who will describe gut how bacteria can influence our metabolism and health. He will focus on how intestinal bacteria can influence the course of disease in metabolic-related diseases, such as obesity, diabetes and atherosclerosis.
