Virtual Congress - selected highlights

EAS 2020 has drawn to a close - the first virtual meeting of the European Atherosclerosis Society was a landmark event. Our goal was to deliver a virtual forum where scientists, researchers and clinicians from all over the world could exchange their findings and ideas within the field of atherosclerosis, With many outstanding presentations and insightful discussions, attended by over 6,500 participants, we believe we achieved our goal for this event, and, importantly, have formed a community where the exchange and discussion can continue.

Thank you to everyone whose studies and research contributed to the scientific programme. The many outstanding lectures, informative discussions and posters can still be viewed on the Congress platform - a wealth of fascinating science for you to take in at your own pace.

Below, we present selected highlights and reports from the meeting. To see more, visit the Congress website.

Opening Ceremony & Anitschkow Lecture


The EAS President, Professor Lale Tokgözoğlu (Hacettepe University, Ankara, Turkey), welcomed participants from across all continents, gave an overview of some of recent achievements of the Society, and looked ahead to future challenges. 

"We believe that the only way to move forward during difficult times is through science." Professor Lale Tokgozoglu, EAS President, opens the Congress.

Foundations of Immunometabolism and Implications for Metabolic Health and Disease


Immunometabolism is an emerging field investigating the interplay between immune response and metabolic processes. In the last two decades it has become clear that overlapping and redundant inflammatory pathways play pleiotropic roles in metabolism, and that the metabolic state is a critical determinant of immune function.
