Welcome to the MCCT!

Maastricht Consensus Conference on Thrombosis (MCCT) 2022

Please note, because there are still uncertainties with the pandemic and the ever- changing measures we decided to take the final decision at 15 February to allow MCCT to continue live in March or to postpone.

At 15 February we very much hope to inform you that the MCCT will take place in March live in Maastricht.

Welcome to Maastricht! 

We are very happy to announce the 4th MCCT, which will take place from 23-25 March 2022 in Hotel Crowne Plaza in Maastricht, The Netherlands.

For this 4th MCCT meeting we have assembled a tentative program, focused on “Blood coagulation and beyond”. The main theme expresses the importance of blood coagulation elements as regulators of hemostasis, but also in a range of diseases: from myocardial infarction and stroke, to cancer, sepsis and other major morbidities. One essential feature of the blood coagulation system is that it is not confined by boundaries: clotting regulates beyond the vessel wall, at the cellular level.
In the 4th MCCT meeting we again assemble faculty, students and other participants to together sketch outlines for future research. Ticardio students will actively be involved in discussion panels. The outcome will again be published in a major scientific journal.

An internationally renowned faculty has committed to this inspiring meeting.

The interaction among participants is key, therefore an online meeting is no option!
We instead guarantee an excellent meeting at an attractive venue in one of the most appealing cities in the Netherlands and in the heart of Europe, Maastricht.

This 4th MCCT will be jointly organized with Ticardio.

All physicians and scientists involved or interested in thrombosis and hemostasis are very much welcome to attend this meeting!

Nederlandse Internisten Vereniging (NIV) - 13 credits
Nederlandse Vereniging voor Cardiologie (NVVC) - 17 credits

The theme

This is a highly interactive working conference where scientists from all backgrounds, including academia and industry, interact with the audience on “hot topics” in cardiovascular diseases with a focus on venous and arterial thrombosis.
