WICH 2017 - Welcome Letter

Welcome Letter

Dear Colleagues,  

It is our privilege to announce that the Johns Hopkins University will be hosting the 6th World Intracranial Hemorrhage Conference (WICH 2017) on May 1-3, 2017 in Baltimore, Maryland, United States. The Conference will feature highly respected speakers who will share, discuss, debate and dissect significant new developments and scientific advancements that will impact the future of intracranial hemorrhage. The planned program will provide learning opportunities for students, medical specialists and clinicians from all fields of endeavor, as well as world-class content for researchers and industry supporters.

The main theme of the conference is "Accelerating Scientific Discoveries and Major Milestones in Intracranial Hemorrhage Therapeutics." The conference will lay a platform for the interaction between experts around the world and aims to encourage further research via the exchange of ideas between researchers and clinicians. The program will include all fields of intracranial hemorrhage, in order to understand the mechanisms behind these varied conditions and discuss how to improve their treatments. 

Our international scientific program committee has developed an exciting single stream program that exposes participants to the most up-to-date aspects of intracerebral hemorrhage, subarachnoid hemorrhage, traumatic hemorrhage, and vascular malformations. The audience includes world leading basic scientists, epidemiologists, geneticists and clinicians making the program of the highest quality. 

Baltimore is a beautiful place in May.  It is a wonderful site with opportunities to the rich mid-Atlantic region history from Colonial America to the industrial revolution and a modern day medical / biotech environment.  The conference site is conveniently located for those wishing to explore the cultural and touristic centers of Baltimore, Annapolis, Gettysburg, Harpers Ferry, and Washington DC. 

On behalf of the Organizing Committee of WICH 2017, we look forward to welcoming all to Baltimore, Maryland, one of the United States' leading healthcare and medical research hubs – and to enjoy what we have to offer – a modern, state-of-the-art infrastructure, with a unique blend of the contemporary and traditional ways of life in our multi-racial, multi-cultural heritage.
