Welcome to Manchester, UK and the 12th International Symposium on Resistance Arteries (ISRA 2017). Your scientific committee have excelled themselves in putting together an exciting programme of speakers and sessions. As per ISRA tradition, ISRA 2017 will provide a fantastic opportunity for resistance artery researchers to meet, discuss ideas and form exciting new collaborations related to the resistance artery field. Session themes will cover fundamentals of resistance artery research, the influence of other cells, to the pathophysiological relevance of resistance arteries in disease. We are excited to be showcasing some of our young talent in the resistance artery field as well as welcoming back old friends. Again, a warm welcome to Manchester and ISRA 2017!
Welcome to ISRA 2017
I am delighted to invite you to attend the 12th International Symposium on Resistance Arteries (ISRA) to be held in Manchester on September 3rd-6th 2017. Manchester is annually rated as best by students seeking a University place for its nightlife and accommodation. It is an exciting vibrant City in the North West of England with good transport links to the Peak and Lake Districts. The meeting itself will take place in the centre of the City close to restaurant areas, theatres and jazz quarters. Whilst we promised intense sessions there will be time for play and we aim to entertain all the delegates by catering to their interests. Even the runners will have a course which will take them along the Rochdale Canal. We look forward to seeing you in 2017 and welcoming you to Manchester and showing you at its very best.
