Vasculata™ 2019 will be an intense 3 1/2 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.
New this year - a poster competition, where the winners will get to give talks.
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 Hal Dietz, Johns Hopkins University, entitled, "Leveraging Nature’s Success: Lessons from Modifiers of Cardiovascular Disease," a Pre-Conference Meeting for and organized by trainees, Award Lectures, joint symposia on Emerging Technologies and Imaging, and Vascular Transcriptomics: Discovery and Therapeutic Opportunities, and of course posters and exhibits. Travel Awards for trainees will be available.
