A smart bra aims to better detect and prevent heart problems in women When Alicia Chong Rodriguez was an electrical engineering computer science student at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), she became immersed in using large systems and computational datasets for cardiovascular research. She quickly saw how data had the power to...

Today we know that we co-exist in a world teeming with trillions upon trillions of microbes. They survive on the frozen tundra of the Antarctic, endure the thermal vents in the bottom of the ocean, and thrive in our guts and on our skin. Yet for centuries scientists pushed a theory that at least one part of our body – the lungs – were sterile...

In this one-hour webinar, Dr. Sadiya S. Khan, MD, MSc, will present her research and ideas on "Cardiovascular Health in the Peripartum Period: Drivers and Determinants." She will discuss how cardiovascular health in the peripartum period is associated with adverse pregnancy outcomes with short- and long-term implications for the birthing adult and offspring. In addition, Dr. Khan will share how upstream drivers offer opportunities for intervention to improve cardiovascular health.

There is an urgent need for developing rational strategies employing modern tools and approaches for the application of detection and treatment strategies in the face of competing risks from comorbidities. Additionally, there is very limited understanding on the aspects of social determinants of health, age and gender-based differences in arrhythmia prognosis. A better classification on subsets of arrhythmia patients is needed. This workshop aims to provide a platform for robust discussions on both established and new research, knowledge gaps and barriers to translational progress, tailoring and optimizing preventive, diagnostic, and treatment strategies at the individual patient level. The goal is to identify new directions on therapeutic approaches and pharmacologic management (novel drug targets, biomarkers etc.), invasive and AI/eHealth-based management (including social determinants of health, age and gender-based differences) in arrhythmia prognosis, that will reduce suffering and death from arrhythmias and possibly cardiovascular diseases across lifespan.
