Symposium on Cardiovascular Regenerative Medicine

Welcome

Mark your calendar now and plan to attend the Symposium on Cardiovascular Regenerative Medicine on October 4-5, 2011. Register Online

The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute's fourth Symposium on Cardiovascular Regenerative Medicine will bring together experts in basic stem cell biology, as well as clinical cardiovascular medicine, to discuss the emerging basic science, preclinical animal models and potential clinical applications.

Topics include new advances in IPS cell technology, reprogramming for cardiovascular regeneration, stem cells and in vitro disease modeling, translating stem cell biology toward therapy, tissue engineering, an update on the NHLBI Progenitor Consortium, and a clinical trials update/roundtable, "Are We Ready For the Next Generation of Stem Cell-related Therapy?"

The emphasis will again be on recent discoveries and trends. We will examine the challenges and critical questions that require answers as the field moves forward to clinical applications.

The Symposium’s goals are to help the science and field move forward, to find consensus regarding the translation of stem cell biology and research into a clinical setting, and to inspire participants in their own work.
