International Scientific Conferences

Bringing Clinicians and Scientists Together

Every two years, clinicians and scientists from around the world gather together at the HHT International Scientific Conference to discuss the latest advances in HHT research. This important meeting leads to scientific collaborations that accelerate progress in HHT research, treatment, and extending patient access to expert care.




September 29 - October 2, 2022

Estoril, Cascais, Portugal


Bringing together the world's leading HHT experts in both basic research and clinical practice to focus on translating findings between these fields. The program will feature several outstanding keynote speakers, multiple cross-disciplinary sessions, extensive opportunities for presenting and viewing posters and for interdisciplinary discussions.


The HHT International Scientific Conference takes place every two years, rotating between Europe and North America.  Cure HHT and the conference organizing committee chose Portugal in an effort to reach clinicians and researchers in this underserved region. We have chosen a beautiful venue and will offer several activities that highlight the country's culture.
