"Ask The Experts" Format: ++++

What a great meeting! What was your favorite type of session? Personnaly, I really liked the "Ask The Experts" format, and particularly the one from yesterday (Tuesday, November 19), "ATE.702-Are Cholesterol-Loaded Macrophages Proinflammatory?". It was great to hear short, but very innovative and meaningful talks. By attending those 10 to 15 minutes talks, showing both a concise summary of the litterature on the field, and new unpublished data, the audience had the possibility to really assess the scientists' creativity and opinion, since the format was also allowing the presenters to promote a "mini debate" on the question. It was interesting to be able to hear, in a very active and diplomatic manner, the different points of view of the experts in the field, ponctuated by strong data and solid arguments. We need more of those short, "punchy" talks!

"Bravo" to the speakers!

See you in Toronto!
