The 14th International Conference on Long-Term Complications of Treatment of Children and Adolescents for Cancer will focus on the exchange of innovative ideas among medical and pediatric oncologists (fellows, residents), nurse practitioners, oncology nurses, and other associated allied health professionals who, in the past, have attended from Europe, Asia, Australia, South America, Canada and the United States. The topic this year is endothelial cell and vascular function and aging. This symposium is designed to present the latest scientific and clinical advances regarding the endothelial cell and vascular development, endothelial cell and vascular dysfunction, and interventions to ameliorate vascular dysfunction..

The topics in the program have been selected based on the suggestions and comments of participants from previous meetings. The speakers are leaders in their respective disciplines and will present up-to-the minute information that should make for a lively and productive meeting.
