We are pleased to announce the 14th International Conference on Pediatric Mechanical Circulatory Support Systems and Pediatric Cardiopulmonary Perfusion scheduled for May 3-5, 2018 at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago.
An international symposium of cardiothoracic surgeons, cardiologists, perfusionists, ECMO specialists, bioengineers, basic scientists and other healthcare professionals, this meeting will give attendees the opportunity to network with over 200 healthcare providers. The overall objective of the conference is to bring together internationally recognized clinicians, bioengineers and basic scientists involved in research on pediatric mechanical circulatory support systems and pediatric cardiopulmonary bypass physiology. The 2018 meeting, through didactic sessions and simulations, will provide an overview on the current landscape and innovations of mechanical circulatory support and cardiopulmonary perfusion for the child, adolescent, and adult with congenital heart disease.
See our program for a detailed agenda and listing of invited speakers and moderators.
A block of rooms has been reserved at the Cambria Hotel, just steps away from Lurie Children's. The reduced block rate ($189/night) will be available through April 5, 2018 only by following this link. After April 5, please contact Dana in Reservations at 312.523.0902 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
