Online Content

In these strange times, when COVID-19 is determing where and how we work, NAVBO is here to support the vascular biology community by offering online content for your use in teaching or just filling the gap caused by missed meetings. 


In addition to our upcoming webinars with Courtney Griffin (April 2), Martin Schwartz (May 14) and Mary Wallingford (June 11), don't forget we have recordings of all past webinars from Ondine Cleaver in March 2018 through Brant Weinstein on March 12.  See www.navbo.org/events/webinars for all of the recordings.

Note to members:  if you would like to use any of the recorded webinars for teaching purposes or to share with your trainees, please contact Bernadette (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) for access.

Webinar Discussions    

We are repurposing some of our recorded webinars and will bring the presenters together for live discussions.  Participants will watch designated recorded webinars prior to the live discussion and then log into a webinar for a 30-minute discussion with the presenters.  The groups will include the following topics: Vascular Development, Lymphatics, Vascular Malformations, Mural cells/Pericytes and Metabolism

Mural Cells and Pericytes - April 13 at 1:00pmET

Webinars included are: 

Pericyte Alk5/Timp3 Axis Contributes To Endothelial Morphogenesis In The Developing Brain
Presenter: Daniel Grief, Yale School of Medicine

Mural Cell SDF1 Signaling Is Associated with The Pathogenesis of Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension
Presenter: Ke Yuan, Boston Children's Hospital

Please review their recorded webinars prior to the live discussion on April 13 at 1:00pm

In addition, and to make this discussion even more relevant, we will also discuss the following article, "The ACE2 expression in human heart indicates new potential mechanism of heart injury among patients infected with SARS-CoV-2," which is online at https://academic.oup.com/cardiovascres/advance-article/doi/10.1093/cvr/cvaa078/5813131

Online Mini-Symposia  

NAVBO has held two sessions already and they were very well received and very well attended.  Our next one is:

Vascular Specification and Development

April 21 at 1:00pmET

Register today: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/3821322281504631809
The session will feature the following presentations:
Renal stromal netrin-1 signaling drives kidney arterial development (Xiaowu Gu, UT Southwestern)
Inhibition of Notch signaling in pericytes leads to AVM-like lesions (Taliha Nadeem, University of Illinois, Chicago)
Dach1 Promotes Coronary Artery Endothelial Cell Specification (Brian Raftrey, Stanford University)
Pro-angiogenic properties of Purified Exosome Product (PEP) (Ao Shi, Mayo Clinic)
The session will be moderated by Kayla Bayless, Texas A&M University

These sessions are not recorded, but are open to the entire vascular biology community.  


We are seeking contributors for additional content.  If you would like to present your work in an upcoming mini-symposium,please complete our online submission form.

Until further notice, these sessions will also include discussion time for anything that members would like to discuss from scientific topics to career strategies and to coping and functioning during your lab lock down.


Please participate!
