NHLBI Holds Vascular Symposium
Registration is now open for the 2016 National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute symposium “Unraveling Vascular Inflammation: From Immunology to Imaging,” the first of its kind to focus on vascular inflammation emerging research as it relates to immunology, systemic inflammation and multi-modal imaging.
The Oct. 24-25 symposium, to be held at the Natcher Conference Center, will bring together the world’s most renowned experts in the field, providing a forum for international collaboration across disciplines to speed discoveries, fill gaps in existing knowledge and potentially lead to critical breakthroughs in ways to understand vascular inflammation as it relates to future cardiovascular disease events. Keynote speakers include Dr. Frank Nestle, King’s College London; Dr. Paul Ridker, Brigham and Women’s Hospital; and Dr. David Newby, University of Edinburgh.
Fast-paced presentations will facilitate exchange of ideas on critical topics, including translational studies involving cardiovascular imagery and quantification and the immunology of inflammation. A poster session, including a competition and cash award, will enable evaluation and discussion of additional research and guidance to early career researchers.
Symposium registration is free. To register, submit an abstract or learn more, visit https://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/news/events/unraveling-vascular-inflammation-immunology-imaging-2016.
