Announcement: The Eighteenth International Conference on Endothelin (ET-18)

Welcome to the official website of the International Conferences on Endothelin.


The Eighteenth International Conference on Endothelin (ET-18) will be held October 11-14, 2023, in Rome, Italy. The Conference will be co-chaired by Carmine Cardillo, Francesca Schinzari, and Bean Dhaun. More information will be available soon.

The Japanese physician-scientist Tomoh Masaki (1934-2020) discovered endothelins and endothelin receptors at the University of Tsukuba between 1987 and 1990. The resulting science and new patient treatments that are based on Professor Masaki's discoveries are summarized in «Endothelin - 30 years from discovery to therapy» and «In memoriam: Tomoh Masaki». Established in 1988, this global biomedical conference has now entered its fourth decade. The endothelin conferences are held biannually in a rotating fashion in America, Europe, and Asia, presenting the latest in basic and clinical science on endothelins and endothelin receptor antagonists (ERAs). This website provides information about history, science and past endothelin conferences, as well as videos, lectures and presentations from some of the previous conferences.
