symposium goals

  - To provide an overview of the
    NHLBI roadmap for cardio-
    vascular stem cell research
    going forward.

  - To relate novel insights from
    embryonic cardiovascular
    development to our understand-
    ing of adult cardiovascular
    stem cells.

 - To review the recent break-
    through discovery of induced-
    pluripotent stem cells (iPS-cells),
    and how they might be harness-
    ed for therapeutic applications.

 - To discuss the emerging and
    inter-related field of epithelial
    to mesenchymal transition,
    and the relevance of this to
    cardiovascular and stem cell
    biology.

 - To emphasize recent discover-
    ies that will facilitate the trans-
    lation of this knowledge from
    bench to bedside.
