Join the ECTS Meet-the-Expert Programme and interact with experts in the field while bridging between state-of-the-art science and clinical practice.  The sessions will be highly interactive, based on case discussions rather than on lectures.  The programme will engage both basic scientists and clinicians in the field and will allow participation to multiple sessions.
