Welcome from the Chair

Welcome to the 2012 International Society for Therapeutic Ultrasound Symposium at the Heidelberg Congress Center in Heidelberg, Germany.

This year, the meeting will be held together with the 2nd International Symposium on Sonothrombolysis, offered as a Satellite Symposium of the ISTU on June 10, 2012. Thus we expect a diverse and multidisciplinary audience this year at ISTU 2012.

A broad range of topics will be covered at ISTU 2012 including Bubble-Enhanced Delivery, Brain Drug Delivery, Cavitation Studies, Clinical Studies, Transducers and Devices, Tumor Delivery and Treatment, and Gene and Cell Therapy. Esteemed experts from around the world have accepted our invitation to lecture on some of the most exciting developments taking place in therapeutic ultrasound. Oral sessions will be organized into two parallel tracks along with special plenary sessions for all participants.

A Student Paper Competition will be held again this year. Finalists will compete for the Award in Honor of Nadine Barrie Smith by giving both oral and paper presentations. The student award committee will judge these during Monday afternoon's poster session and the winners will be announced at the plenary session on Wednesday morning.

We very much hope that all attendees will enjoy the Sunday welcome reception at the congress center.

We thank our sponsors and exhibitors without which this conference would not be possible. We look forward to seeing you in Heidelberg!
