Program Committee
Symposium Announcement


This symposium will provide an overview of methods and approaches for analyzing cardiovascular phenotype in mouse animal models. The scientific program includes both adult and fetal/embryonic cardiovascular assessments. Among the topics included are:

  • MRI, CT, ultrasound and molecular imaging
  • Functional assessments including telemetry and catheterization
  • Genomic approaches for molecular phenotyping
  • ENU mutagenesis and mouse mutations affecting cardiovascular development and function

In addition to scheduled talks, time is allotted for discussions on outstanding problems and issues in cardiovascular phenotyping, such as the effects of anesthesia, and the limitations of the mouse for modeling human cardiovascular disease. We will also be having a poster session and abstract submissions for it are welcome.

Subsequent to the symposium, a series of in-depth reviews will be assembled on topics covered during the symposium and will be published in Physiologic Genomics.

Registration is still open. If you have trouble accessing the electronic registration page, please call 301-496-4910 or e-mail We encourage those of you already working in this area as well as those wanting to learn about this field to attend the symposium. We look forward to your participation and a stimulating scientific exchange.
