We are happy to announce the upcoming of a symposium on the most recent advances in von Willebrand factor research. The symposium will be held within the Shenc consortium and will cover a broad range of aspects of von Willebrand function and disfunction, its role in homeostasis and diseases, as well as the biomechanical aspects of its functioning.
HITS, the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies, was established in 2010 by physicist and SAP co-founder Klaus Tschira (1940-2015) and the Klaus Tschira Foundation as a private, non-profit research institute. HITS conducts basic research in the natural, mathematical, and computer sciences. Major research directions include complex simulations across scales, making sense of data, and enabling science via computational research. Application areas range from molecular biology to astrophysics. An essential characteristic of the Institute is interdisciplinarity, implemented in numerous cross-group and cross-disciplinary projects. The base funding of HITS is provided by the Klaus Tschira Foundation.
