Preclinical Research in Acute Cardiac and Critical Care – PRAC3!

Welcome to Preclinical Research in Acute Cardiac and Critical Care – PRAC3!


The PRAC3 (Preclinical Research in Acute Cardiac and Critical Care) 2-day meeting is a new ISICEM initiative designed to bring together all those involved in experimental/pre-clinical research in critical care, with a focus on translational cardiogenic and septic shock investigation. Led by an international faculty of experts in the field, the scientific program will cover multiple relevant topics, including the development of clinically-relevant animal models, design of experimental studies, state-of-the-art research methodology, latest results from research teams, and future perspectives. PRAC3 is open to anyone with an interest in critical care research, including clinical practitioners and other allied health professionals, bioengineers, and industry members; for participants to gain most from the meeting, some personal experience in critical care research is preferable.

PRAC3 will be held on the Erasme campus (University of Brussels) and aims to rapidly become a key translational link between pre-clinical research findings and future clinical trial development.
