Welcome to the Northern Vascular Biology Forum (NVBF) website. The NVBF initially comprised the Universities of Manchester, Manchester Metropolitan, Sheffield, Leeds, and Hull-York Medical School. Since it’s re-invigoration in 2013 our community has grown and we now have representation from 8 cities and 12 universities – please find your local representative on the ‘Who we are‘ tab.

We host an annual conference in December. This is a very relaxed affair, where nominated speakers from each university present their most recent findings. A poster session is open to all active researchers within the member universities. Our delegates always comment on the friendliness of our meetings and because of this, they are an ideal platform for junior researchers to take their first steps in presenting – we’re looking forward to hearing from you! You can find all the details about our meetings on the ‘Current Meetings‘ and ‘Past Meetings‘ tabs.
