Presentations at ISHEN 2019

Many presentations at this important conference about HE.


Part of our team will travel to Williamsburgh, Virginia to attend the biennial ISHEN congress.

Many presentations will be offered by our team. Among these, 2 lectures will be given by Christopher on the pathogenesis of HE. Also, among our accepted abstracts, the one of Mariana was chosen to be an oral presentation.

Thank you to ISHEN for the travel grants of Mariana and Rafael.
