Welcome to ET-16!
On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is our great pleasure to invite you to participate in the Sixteenth International Conference on Endothelin (ET-16) from 22-25 September, 2019 to be held in Kobe, Japan. ET-16 will be a global conference where experts on Endothelin from academia and industry come together and where participants can share and enjoy high quality scientific discussions on all matters related to endothelin in basic and clinical research.

The conference will provide an ideal opportunity for reflection on developments over the last three decades after the discovery of endothelin as well as focusing on future developments. Therefore, we set out “Endothelin: Visiting Old and Learning New” as the theme of the ET-16 conference. The conference program will feature internationally recognized clinical and research leaders in endothelin science as well as highlighting progress in clinical pathophysiology and recent developments in the clinical application of endothelin receptor antagonists.

Kobe is Japan's sixth-largest city with a busy port which opened in 1868 and is located between the calm blue Seto Inland Sea and green Rokko Mountain. Kobe is famous for its fine and diverse food culture including the world-famous Kobe Beef, Nada Sake, and a wide variety of international cuisines.

Meeting up with your colleagues from many different countries in Kobe will stimulate a creative exchange of ideas and will be personally rewarding as much as it has been at these conferences during the last 30 years. We look forward to your active participation in the ET-16 and to welcoming you to the beautiful city of Kobe in September 2019.
