Coronavirus and the cardiovascular system
As our regular autumn meeting was postponed due to COVID-19, the BSCR have organised this highly topical online symposium.
"Coronavirus and the cardiovascular system" is free to attend for BSCR members and non-members. We have three excellent speakers (see below). The symposium will be followed by the BSCR AGM for members only.
While membership is not required to attend the symposium, we encourage non-members to visit our homepage (https://bscr.org/). Here you can learn more about the BSCR, advantages of membership and how to become a member.
