Letter from the President

The council of the European Society for Clinical Investigation cordially invites you to the 38th Annual Scientific Meeting to be held in Utrecht, The Netherlands. Professor Jo Marx, President of the Local Organizing Committee, together with his team have organized a programme of high scientific standard, consisting of workshops and subspeciality sessions, complemented with highly rated speakers for the plenary sessions.

ESCI, the only European Society with a multidisciplinary aspect, where students, young and established scientists are invited to present their scientific work, has a tradition of bringing basic and clinical science close together.

Utrecht in the center of The Netherlands, with its historic sites and canals, welcomes you to discuss, learn and present science in the modern ambience of the “Educatorium” of the Utrecht University, the congress site in 2004.

I am confident that you will experience the best of science in a great atmosphere of culture and friendship.

Prof. Heinrich M. Schulte
President of the European Society for Clinical Investigation

Letter from the Organizing Committee

Dear Colleagues

The University of Utrecht, founded in 1634, is the largest in The Netherlands. The faculties of biomedical sciences, including medicine, veterinary science, pharmacy, biology and biochemistry, are among the strongest in Europe. In Utrecht, great science is made in an exciting environment. The city, with a history going back to Roman times, has a beautiful old center with numerous monumental buildings and an abundance of all kinds of restaurants and cafes. Being in the heart of Holland, Utrecht can be easily reached by train, car or bicycle, and Schiphol Airport is just half an hour away.

The ESCI annual scientific meeting will offer a mixture of fundamental, biomedical and clinical science, where a multidisciplinary discussion of mechanisms of disease will be stimulated. A forum will be offered where established and young investigators can discuss science of the highest possible quality in workshops, symposia, poster presentations, plenary sessions and keynote lectures.
