41st Annual European Sociery for Artificial Organ Congress
On the behalf of the European Society for Artificial Organs (ESAO), it is our great pleasure to invite you to participate in the 41st Annual ESAO Congress that will be held in Rome (Italy) on September 17-20, 2014.
The congress will be held in the Giovanni XXIII Congress Center located inside the Gemelli Polyclinics in the heart of the eternal city of Rome. The Gemelli Polyclinics of the Catholic University of the Sacred Heart is an institution where research and patient assistance are performed at levels of excellence and where the patient is always at the center of the attention of medical and technical personnel.
The Congress is focused on “Patient happiness: the Holy Grail of organ substitution” and aims:
to discuss the importance of technical, psychological and ethical issue to patient happiness with serious tissue or organ deficits
to re-define the strategy to design and operate devices and treatments to ensure patient happiness
to bring together scientists with medical and technical backgrounds working on development, optimization and translation to clinics of treatments of organ deficits based on artificial, bioartificial, and cell-based organs or prostheses
to bridge communication gaps and promote new, or reinforce existing, multidisciplinary collaborations to exploit possible synergies
to provide up-to-date information on frontier technology to treat serious tissue or organ deficits
to pave the ground for the development of innovative treatments based on artificial, bioartificial and cell-based organs, prostheses or treatments which should ensure happiness, or at least improve on the quality of life, of patients with serious tissue or organ deficits.
We look forward to meeting you in Rome to explore together possible venues to improve on the quality of patients life. We hope that you will take this opportunity to visit the eternal city of Rome, a unique city which for centuries has been the cradle of art, literature, music and science.
