Vasculata™ 2021 will be an intense 3 day course introducing the basics of cardiovascular biology and cardiovascular disease with an emphasis on new approaches to treating the most common causes of human disease in our society, based on cutting-edge research in the field. Vasculata combines a self-study program and seminars from leaders in the field with optional hands-on workshops, thus providing attendees with a unique learning experience in a discipline not comprehensively covered in textbooks or even by courses in most universities.
Abstracts are due June 1, 2021.
Vascular Biology is the annual meeting of the North American Vascular Biology Organization. This meeting will feature the Developmental Vascular Biology and Genetics Workshop and the Vascular Matrix Biology and Bioengineering Workshop plus special symposia, a keynote lecture by Mary Dickinson, Baylor College of Medicine, entitled, "Plumbing the embryo: Genetic and mechanical mechanism needed for early blood flow," a Pre-Conference Meeting for and organized by trainees, Award Lectures, joint symposia on Mechanotransduction, and Vascular Therapeutics, and of course posters and exhibits. Travel Awards for trainees will be available.
Speakers are confirmed and listed.
We are currently planning to hold an inperson meeting, but realize that many attendees may still have restricted travel, therefore, we are looking to include virtual elements as well. Either setting (virtual or in-person) will offer great opportunities for attendees and presenters.
Since 1980, the International Vascular Biology Meeting has been bringing vascular biologists from across the globe together for learning and collaboration. The North American Vascular Biology Organization (NAVBO) is proud to be sponsoring this meeting in 2022. Visit the web page to meet our organizers, led by Dr. Rong Wang, University of San Francisco and her co-chairs Masanori Aikawa (Brigham & Women's) and Jan Kitajewski (University of Illinois).
The program is based on seven themes with five to six sessions in each: Vascular Development and Aging, Vascular Beds and Cells, Vascular Physiology, Vasculature in Disease, Vascular Diseases, Translational Research And Emerging Topics and New Technologies
Over 80 speakers have been invited and the program is well underway. A web site is underdevelopment, but in the meantime, meet our organizers.
On Thursday, June 3 at 1:00pm EST, NAVBO will present our newest webinar entitled, "Lung injury repair by the pulmonary microvasculature " by
