Announcement: The Eighteenth International Conference on Endothelin (ET-18)


Welcome to the official website of the
International Conferences on Endothelin.

Established in 1988, this global biomedical conference has now entered its fourth decade. The endothelin conferences are held biannually in a rotating fashion in America, Europe, and Asia, presenting the latest in basic and clinical science on endothelin and endothelin receptor antagonists (ERAs).

The Eighteenth International Conference on Endothelin (ET-18) will be held in the fall of 2023, in Rome, Italy. The Conference will be co-chaired by Carmine Cardillo, Francesca Schinzari, and Bean Dhaun. More information will follow.

This website provides information about endothelin science, vascular biology history, and past and upcoming and endothelin conferences. Videos of lectures and presentations from some of the previous conferences are also available.

Tomoh Masaki (1934-2020) discovered endothelin and endothelin receptors at the University of Tsukuba between 1987 and 1990. The resulting science and new patient treatments that are based on Professor Masaki's discoveries are summarized in «Endothelin - 30 years from discovery to therapy» and «In memoriam: Tomoh Masaki».
