Building on the success of the first meeting, scientific chairs Ziad Mallat (University of Cambridge) and Christoph Binder (Medical University of Vienna) will come together again to host the 2nd Immuno-Metabolic Mechanisms of Atherosclerosis Conference. For the 2020 conference they will also be joined by new chair Eicke Latz, Institute Director at The Institute of Innate Immunity, University of Bonn. The meeting will take place from 01 – 04 March 2020 at the beautiful beachside location of the Melia Nassau Hotel, Bahamas.

Atherosclerosis and its complications remain the major cause of death in the industrialized world and emerging economies worldwide. The goal of this second series is to provide attendees with a comprehensive overview of current research on atherosclerosis with a focus on the latest and most exciting developments in the immuno-metabolic mechanisms that govern disease initiation and progression. There is little doubt that the next most exciting therapy to combat cardiovascular disease will be based on targeting biological pathways that will have been discussed during this conference
