The Conference

14th International Symposium on Mechanisms of VasoDilatation
Three Days of Talks

Since the first meeting [July 10-12, 1977] in Wilrijk, Belgium, the symposia on Mechanisms Of VasoDilatation (MOVD) have been held around the world for over 40 years. Paul M Vanhoutte played a major role in organizing the past symposia and gathering the skilled investigators to discuss the mechanisms by which blood vessel dilate, in particular the various factors involved in the relaxation of vascular smooth muscle. During the 4th MOVD [July 10-12, 1986] held at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, Dr Robert F. Furchgott and Dr Louis J. Ignarro independently announced that EDRF (endothelium-derived relaxing factor) was nitric oxide.

The last MOVD meeting [May 20-22, 2019] took place in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, as a joint meeting with the symposia of Endothelium-Dependent Hyperpolarization (MOVD/EDH2019). To continue the long tradition in honour of Paul M Vanhoutte, the next MOVD will be held in Hong Kong, under the name MOVD2021. The organizing committee consists of the local members, Yu Wang (Chair), Susan WS Leung and Yu Huang, and the international steering members, A.H. Jan Danser, Jo G.R. De Mey and Robert Widdop.

 

We look forward to welcoming you all to Hong Kong in 2021!
