We are anesthesiologists, intensivists, physiologists - physicians, basic scientists, students - from Canada, France, Germany, Estonia, Czech Republic, Serbia, Egypt and Bangladesh.


Established as a Canadian project in 2012 the small group grew very fast. Colleagues from all over the world joined us. The first "3M" (MiDAS Microcirculation Meeting) took place in Halifax, NS, Canada in 2012 with about 20 particants from 5 countries.
