    AECVP and the CURML welcome you in Lausanne to the 8th Biennial Meeting of the Association for European Cardiovascular Pathology

    The Association for European Cardiovascular Pathology (AECVP), founded in 2001 as an extension to the European School for Cardiovascular Pathology, brings together all the key players among pathologists, forensic pathologists, clinicians and other physicians in Europe actively involved in cardiovascular diseases and cardiac transplantation in Europe. 

    The Association provides a unique platform to serve as a liaison between pathologists, cardiologists and surgeons, and serves as a European network for presenting new research data and exchange of other scientific knowledge with the aim to increase visibility of this specialty.

    The University Center for Legal Medicine in Lausanne in partnership with the University Institute of Pathology Lausanne (CHUV) have been selected to organize next year, in October 2018, the 8th Meeting in Lausanne, Switzerland.
