The British Microcirculation Society was founded in July 1963

“to advance the study of circulation of the blood and other tissue fluids especially, though not exclusively, in the small vessels and of matters relating thereto.”

The membership of more than 250 is drawn largely from the medical sciences – anatomy, biophysics, pathology, pharmacology, physiology and clinical medicine and surgery – but the pharmaceutical industry and the veterinary and physical sciences and mathematics are also represented.

Meeting Title: 11th World Congress of Microcirculation (WCM2018)
Meeting Place: Sheraton Wall Center, Vancouver, Canada
Information: Website (; Facebook  (, Twitter (@WCM2018).

The 11th World Congress of Microcirculation (WCM2018) will be held at the Sheraton Wall Center  in Vancouver, BC, Canada from September 9-13, 2018. Since 1975, the congress has attracted on average 600 delegates from regional Microcirculation Societies from around the world, including Japan, China, Australia and New Zealand, North America, Britain, and the European Union.

The theme of the Congress is microcirculation in health and disease with a focus on emerging research and technologies. Its objective is to advance research and education in the many areas of microcirculation. With strong representation from the International Scientific Advisory Committee, with representatives from England, Europe, North and South America and the Pacific Rim, the Local Organizing Committee has developed an exciting meeting which reflects the growing research areas of microcirculation and the pivotal role these fields play in translational applications. Congress symposia focus on microvascular control, angiogenesis, inflammation, permeability, and lymphatics.

Detailed information as to the plenary lecturers, symposia speakers, poster sessions and early career engagement can be found on the website  ( You can also follow our updates on Facebook  ( and Twitter (@WCM2018).
