On behalf of the Organizing Committee, I am very glad to inform you that the 5th edition of « Metabolic Syndrome, type II Diabetes and Atherosclerosis » congress will be held in Marrakesh, from May 7th to May 11th 2007.
This meeting welcomes a wide number of participants, from all over the world, increasing every year.
Benefiting since its creation from the support of many scientific societies especially the International Atherosclerosis Society and the International Task Force for prevention of Coronary Disease, the congress has been designed to provide an innovative and comprehensive overview of the latest research developments in metabolic syndrome, diabetes and atherosclerosis.
Many distinguished cardiologists, diabetologists and scientists will join the congress. Papers will be presented in the form of plenary sessions, but also symposia, and posters carefully selected by the Scientific Committee, which will offer superb scientific sessions.
I hope that you will enjoy the congress and that your interaction with your colleagues from many different countries will stimulate a creative exchange of ideas.
Pr Jean-Charles FRUCHART
