Abstract: In May 2015, the hypoxia research community came together at the largest meeting in this field to date, to present and discuss their most recent and mainly unpublished findings. This meeting report aims to summarize the data presented at this conference, which were broadly separated into the areas of the cellular hypoxic response, the relevance of the hypoxic response in health and disease, and the development of new therapeutics targeting the hypoxic response.
