We would like to welcome you to the 1st virtual meeting of the Society for Heart and Vascular Metabolism (SHVM), which will be held on 23-24 September 2021.
Covid-19 has made us question many certainties and challenged some of our core beliefs, such as the need for international exchange and coming together to discuss research with the goal of confronting disease paradigms. Despite all the medical advances to change the course of the pandemic, it is still not possible to return to our usual lives.
Unfortunately, the SHVM meeting planned for 2020 in Halifax, which was prepared with a lot of commitment and heart, had to be postponed. This leaves us separated in different spots around the globe for another year. We did not want to wait until we might meet again in Seoul in 2022 and decided to use online tools to prepare a virtual SHMV meeting in 2021 on "Metabolism at the crossroads of health and disease". In other words, we are connecting the spots.
So, let’s overcome our current constraints and meet online to do what we like the most, i.e., discuss science.
We hope to see you ZOOM!
