''In addition to a wide variety of traditional oxygen transport topics, particular areas have been selected for emphasis at the 1997 meeting, which are: Molecular and genetic techniques to study oxygen transport in health and disease
Angiogenesis during hypoxia, ischemia, and development
Physiological mechanisms of oxygen sensing
Physiological fluctuations of cerebral blood flow, metabolism and oxygenation
Near infrared and phsophorescence techniques for the assessment of blood and tissue oxygenation
Advances in biotechnology of anticoagulants and blood substitutes.
