Participants will gain insights into our mentorship programme and how to develop a successful career in hypertension research, share ideas, develop collaborations, interact and build relationships that cross disciplines and continents. An important new part of this symposium will be speed-networking sessions with mentors. Investigators will get a chance to meet world leaders in the field of hypertension.
