Welcome remarks

We are very pleased and truly honored to invite you to the IBS-KVBM-KAIST Conference on Vascular Biology in October 10-12, 2018 at Daejeon, Korea.

The IBS Center for Vascular Research was established three years ago and Korean Society for Vascular Biology and Medicine(KVBM) has been gradually expanded. The director of the IBS Center and the organizers of KVBM will hold the joint meeting with key speakers who are working in vascular biology/hematopoiesis research. The meeting will be held at KAIST in Daejeon.

We very much look forward to your visit. Thank you.

Yours Sincerely,
Director Gou Young Koh
