It is a great honour and privilege to welcome You to Sweden and Lund for the European ISSHP 2019 meeting.

Lund University- Regia Academia Carolina, just celebrated 350-years, was founded 1666 and inaugurated 1668. It is ranked among the world’s top 100 universities. The maxim is Ad Utrumque paratus-prepared for both (academia and warfare). Translated into modern visions we are now united in our efforts to understand, explain and improve our world and the human condition.

Lund has a long tradition of obstetrical research in general and ultrasound research specifically, in fact the world’s first sonogram of a duplex pregnancy was captured in Lund 1962 by Bertil Sundén.

The theme of the conference-“Thinking out of the box” has dual purposes. Firstly, to gather the world experts in preeclampsia, as well as outside experts from related fields in hypertension and cardiovascular disease, to broaden the understanding and facilitate new collaborations. The second aim of the conference is to invite world-leading experts in air pollution research, to increase the awareness of air-born particles as a serious contributing factor to human health in general, but to pregnancy in particular. Recent findings have demonstrated an alarming association between exposure to air pollutants and an increased risk of developing preeclampsia. Air pollution in low- and middle-income countries (LMIC) is a tremendous health problem. These countries have the highest maternal mortality rate in the world, with preeclampsia being a leading cause. Increased insight into environmental risk factors for preeclampsia pathophysiology is crucial to enable preventive measures and to protect pregnant women from air pollutions worldwide.

On behalf of the scientific committee I welcome You to Lund to broaden the scientific and clinical understanding of preeclampsia, and to explain and improve maternal health worldwide.

Sincerely Yours
