HISTAMINE 2017
11-13th May, Amsterdam, the Netherlands





Joint meeting of the European and Japanese
Histamine Research Societies


Please join us for the 1st joint meeting of the European and Japanese Histamine Research Societies in Amsterdam. The Medicinal Chemistry group of the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam aims, in close collaboration with the EHRS and JHRS, to organise a high-level scientific meeting with world-experts in the field of histamine research.

The congress will be held on 11th-13th May 2017 in the new O|2 research building of the Vrije Universiteit. The conference site is just 10 min. away (1 train stop) from Schiphol airport and is well connected to the Amsterdam metropool. Moreover, a number of 3-5 star hotels are nearby.

We hope to see you next spring in Amsterdam!
