Aldosterone and Hypertension
Ever since it became apparent that primary aldosteronism is a common cause of hypertension, and with the discovery that aldosterone excess has harmful cardiovascular effects that are independent of its effects on bloods pressure, aldosterone has become and continues to ascend as a “hot topic” in hypertension research. This satellite provides a potpourri of first class presentations exploring the regulation and mechanisms of aldosterone action and mineralocorticoid receptor activation, the pathophysiology of aldosterone excess, and the new genetics of primary aldosteronism and clinical experience with this condition in various countries within the Asian-Pacific region. With 14 presentations from as many experts in their respective fields, anyone with an interest in endocrine hypertension is sure to be treated to an unforgettable day of education and lively discussion. Come along and be entertained!

Role of the Sympathetic Nervous System in Hypertension and Target Organ Damage
The Sympathetic Nervous System (SNS) has moved towards centre stage in cardiovascular, renal, and metabolic medicine. Through its modulating role on the function of relevant organs and their interaction the SNS plays a crucial role in maintaining adequate circadian homeostasis and adaptation to changing environments. Sustained SNS overactivity is associated with adverse health outcomes and an important contributing cause to some of the most relevant and common conditions such as hypertension, chronic kidney disease, metabolic syndrome and others. This Satellite Symposium brings together world-renowned experts and provides a unique opportunity to learn about the latest developments in the field and discuss novel approaches to target the SNS therapeutically.

Gut Microbiome and Hypertension
We invite you to join us to learn more about one of the most exciting new fields of cardiovascular disease: the gut microbiome. In this full-day symposium, we will discuss what the gut microbiome is, how to best design studies and state-of-art methodologies. We will discuss how diet modifies the gut microbiome in hypertension, the gut microbiome in hypertensive complications (such as stroke, MI, and diabetes) and in pregnancy complications such as pre-eclampsia, as well as the trans-generational effect and implications for cardiovascular health.

Central Blood Pressure: What’s New?
The convening committee is delighted to present a stimulating all-day program of outstanding international speakers who will be presenting latest information in the field of central blood pressure. The symposium theme is “Central blood pressure, deeper phenotyping and improving risk assessment.” Professor Alun Hughes from the UCL Institute of Cardiovascular Science, London, will be delivering the Plenary talk and Keynote presentations will be given from a host of eminent researchers including Professor Alberto Avolio (Sydney), Professor John Cockcroft (Wales), Dr Jonathan Mynard (Melbourne) and Dr Carmel McEniery (Cambridge). A suite of talented Young Investigators will also feature their latest findings in a program that promises to deliver new, insightful and noteworthy evidence at the cutting edge of central blood pressure clinical physiology. We look forward to your attendance!
