3 September 7-9, 2011 Haikko Manor Porvoo, Finland Welcome to the Symposium XVII Paavo Nurmi Symposium Dear Participants of the 17 th Paavo Nurmi Symposium, In September 1969, 42 years ago, the newly founded Paavo Nurmi Foundation organized its first international symposium in the Haikko Manor. Numerous foreign and Finnish scientists attended the symposium on Thrombosis and Coronary Heart Disease, and the event was a great success and a start of a tradition of organising high quality symposia in Finland every two years. For the symposia prominent foreign medical scientists are invited to give a presentation of their research and discuss current topics with Finnish scientists. As the Chairman of the organizers, it is my great pleasure to welcome you to attend the 17 th International Paavo Nurmi Symposium. This year s theme, Future Directions of Hypertension - Tailor-made Diagnostics and Treatment, focuses on hypertension and has a special emphasis on several future aspects of cardiovascular medicine. The presentations from leading professionals from all over the world will cover many current and highly interesting topics in the field of high blood pressure research and cardiovascular and fluid balance regulation. We sincerely hope this will lead into interesting dialogues, development of new research contacts, and future scientific collaboration. Previously, the Paavo Nurmi Symposium Proceedings have been published either as supplements in medical journals or in international monographic series. We are pleased that also this year the Foundation made it possible to publish the Congress Proceedings as a special Supplement of the Annals of Medicine. In addition to the printed publication, the papers will also be freely available online for a period of 12 months. Thus, all interested readers worldwide are going to have access to the mini-reviews. On behalf of the Scientific and Organizing Committees I wish you very warmly welcome to this special symposium, Ilkka Pörsti
