Dear Colleagues

On behalf of the European Society for Clinical Investigation and the local organizing Committee I would like to invite you to the 43rd Annual Scientific Meeting of the European Society for Clinical Investigation. The meeting will take place in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, from 1 – 4 April, 2009, at the Campus Westend of the Johann Wolfgang Goethe – University.

Frankfurt – located at the Main River – is an important financial and economic center in Europe but at the same time a place of history and tradition in Germany. The first proclamation of the german constitution took place in the Paulskirche, Goethe was born here and the cultural life is famous including the renowned museums at the Main banks. The architecture of the city includes both classicism and impressive high-rise buildings, which is why some call Frankfurt Mainhattan. Frankfurt brings together extremes and is characterized by a multicultural and tolerant life style, making this city very attractive.

Situated in the heart of Europe and Germany, Frankfurt is an important traffic hub and can be reached by visitors easily. Europe’s second largest airport, with more than 50 million passengers a year, and Germany’s largest railway station, with approximately 350,000 passengers per day, not to mention the motorway connection via the Frankfurt interchange, allow an comfortable way of getting here.

We welcome you to the 2009 ESCI meeting in Frankfurt, which will be a meeting of highest standards in clinical research. Main topics will include mechanisms of cellular, endocrine and metabolic regulation and its consequences for growth, inflammation and atherosclerosis. As a truly interdisciplinary Society it is our aim to bring together scientists from both the clinical and the laboratory side in order to integrate the different aspects of biomedical research.

We are looking forward to seeing you all in Frankfurt!
