Long Term Outcomes of Bariatric Surgery
The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) and the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) are sponsoring a workshop on long-term outcomes of bariatric surgery. The purpose of this workshop is to review the current state-of-the-science in regards to long-term outcomes of bariatric surgery, determine critical gaps in understanding, and strategize about methods to leverage existing clinical studies to fill those gaps. A variety of stakeholders are being invited to the workshop to present their viewpoints.

NHLBI Symposium on Cardiovascular Regenerative Medicine
NIH Campus - Building 45: Natcher Conference Center
The symposium will again bring together experts in basic stem cell biology, as well as clinical cardiovascular medicine, to discuss the emerging basic and developmental science, preclinical animal advances and potential clinical applications. The emphasis will be on recent discoveries and trends, and we will discuss the challenges and critical scientific questions as we continue to advance the field and seek opportunities for clinical translation. Topics will include general and cardiovascular stem cells, clinical applications, tissue engineering, developmental biology, and large-scale proteomics/metabolomics as a tool to identify new clinical deliverables.

Cancer Treatment-Related Cardiotoxicity: Understanding the Current State of Knowledge and Developing Future Research Priorities
The goals of anti-cancer therapies are to prevent recurrence, prolong life, and provide cure. Partly due to improvements in treatment, the population of cancer survivors is large and growing. However, cancer treatment-related cardiotoxicity is the leading cause of treatment-associated mortality in survivors of pediatric and adolescent cancers, after recurrence and second or subsequent malignancies.
