EAS brings together clinicians and basic scientists across a range of disciplines, all from top-flight opinion leaders to those just starting their careers. The programme is created to give many opportunities, both formal and informal, for the personal, face-to-face discussions that spark scientific creativity, stimulate collaboration and can lead to new friendships.
