    CureHHT would like to invite you to join us in Estoril, Cascais, Portugal for the 14th HHT International Scientific Conference. We will host a Welcome Reception on September 28th and scientific sessions on September 29-October 2nd, 2022.  The program this year will feature several outstanding keynote speakers (including Dr. Hans-Jurgen Mager), multiple cross-disciplinary sessions, extensive opportunities for presenting and viewing posters and for interdisciplinary discussions.

    This normally biennial meeting is well over-due. It is the must-attend event for both established and early-stage researchers, as well as clinicians experienced in treating HHT, and those just entering the field of HHT. Basic research is the engine that drives discovery of new drugs and therapies, but it relies on constant input and feedback from clinicians. Results of clinical research provide new insights in the best ways to diagnose and treat HHT.

    The meeting location is situated in the heart of the Portuguese Riviera, overlooking the bays of Estoril and Cascais, close to stunning beaches, historic fishing villages and forts. It is only a 10-minute train journey to the heart of Lisbon, one of the most charismatic and vibrant cities of Europe, and a 15-minute drive to the cooling hills of Serra de Sintra that offers picturesque landscapes and whimsical palaces and gardens. The 5-star Hotel Cascais Miragem Health & Spa offers guests an unmatched combination of culture and beauty. This is a great place for kids and families so bring everyone. The beauty and tranquility of your surroundings will only enhance the 3 and ½ days of collegial and stimulating HHT talks and poster sessions that we have planned for you!
