Welcome to ET-13

The Thirteenth International Conference on Endothelin will be held at Tokyo Campus of Tsukuba University in Tokyo, Japan, September 8-11, 2013. In the tradition of the meeting rotating between the continents the conference this time will be again held in Asia and will provide a forum for cutting-edge science in endothelin and endothelin receptor antagonism research and it will represent the 25
th anniversary of the discovery of endothelin and of the International Conferences on Endothelin since the first conference was held in London in December of 1988 shortly after the discovery of endothelin at the University of Tsukuba.

As an international biomedical research conference, ET conferences have been previously attended by several hundred scientists and clinicians from around the world. Continuing the meeting's tradition, novel findings on the role of endothelin and its receptors in molecular biology, development, pharmacology, general physiology, and pathophysiology will be presented. Most recent results from clinical trials of endothelin antagonism in patients will also be presented.

program of conference will consist of oral and poster communications and State-of-the-Art lectures by international leaders in the field. As in previous years, students, trainees, and young scientists submitting abstracts are encouraged to apply for an "ET-13 Young Investigator Award".

In the unique setting of one the largest cities in the world ET-13 will offer attendees to participate in and contribute to the latest in the still growing field of 25 years of endothelin research. The ET-13 conference will provide updates in both basic and clinical science.

As Chairs of the conference we cordially invite you to share your science with your colleagues at ET-13.
We look forward to seeing you in Tokyo in 2013
