The Wisdom for Conquering Hypertension

Dear colleagues,

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, I am delighted to invite you to the 29th Scientific Meeting of the International Society of Hypertension that will take place in the beautiful city of Kyoto, Japan in 2022.

Kyoto, the ancient capital of Japan, is famous for its long history and unique culture. However, it is also home to high-tech companies, such as Nintendo, Kyocera, and Omron, to name a few. CiRA, the Center for iPS Cell Research and Application headed by Nobel laureate Professor Shinya Yamanaka is established in Kyoto University, which is also the birthplace of SHR, spontaneously hypertensive rat models established in 1963 by Professor Kozo Okamoto.

We welcome all doctors and researchers devoted to studying and treating hypertension to Kyoto to foster intensive discussions and facilitate further development in the field. The ISH 2022 will focus on innovation, advanced technology, and health promotion including food, sports, and AI dimensions. We will offer diverse and extensive scientific programs and strive to involve the largest number of young participants ever. We will also encourage developing countries’ participation by providing financial assistance.

By bringing together multidisciplinary wisdom regarding hypertension-related diseases, we aspire to explore new directions in diagnostics, prevention, and treatment, as well as generate a new paradigm in our shared mission to control the disease.

It is with pride that I invite all of you to participate in the ISH 2022. I strongly believe that you will find the Japanese hospitality extremely satisfying and will be able to deepen and widen your knowledge and expertise to learn from the best and create professional connections. See you in Kyoto!
