Upcoming Events & Seminars
May May 08-09 Fri-Sat 2015
Stanford’s Cardiovascular Medical Symposium
Deadline: April 7, 2015
May May 22 Fri 2015
Cardiac Engineering Symposium
Location: Clark Center
For this year’s Retreat, we asked our selected members to dig deep into the past and project the future of their specialties. Whether it’s clinical science, imaging, stem cells, big data, women’s health or biomaterials and devices, the goal is to propel research that ensures a future in which we minimize damaging one of nature’s most delicate organs.
Congratulations to Ping Liang, Feng Lan, and Andrew Lee for receiving the 2014 Best Basic Science Paper in Circulation
CVI and Stanford have a strong showing at the AHA this year. Visit and support your colleagues at the Nov. 15-19, 2014, in Chicago, IL by checking out some of their abstracts and presentations.
This summit will bring together faculty and participants involved in the areas of arrhythmia mechanisms, diagnosis, and management to participate in topics devoted to cutting edge research and therapeutic innovation. A diverse range of topics will permit clinicians, basic scientists, biomedical engineers and outcomes experts to participate.
The 2014 FH Global Summit will focus on “Bridging the Gaps” in care for those living with familial hypercholesterolemia (FH). The largest issues worldwide continue to be the underdiagnosis of FH and the underappreciation of the effects of FH by individuals, families, and healthcare providers. Perhaps even more importantly, cascade (family-based) screening is not performed, potentially leading to catastrophic outcomes. The FH Foundation is deeply committed to strategically addressing these issues.
Dr. Hlatky is a cardiologist with major research interests in clinical trials, clinical research methods, outcomes research, and comparative effectiveness research. He has participated in many large, multicenter randomized clinical trials, including studies of coronary revascularization, treatment of acute myocardial infarction, hormone therapy to prevent cardiovascular disease, and management of life-threatening ventricular arrhythmias.
Kobilka is the Helene Irwin Fagan Chair in Cardiology and a professor of molecular and cellular physiology. He shared the 2012 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his work on understanding the structure and function of G-protein-coupled receptors, a large family of receptors that sense molecules outside the cell and convey chemical messages from those molecules into the cell’s interior.
The CVI would like to warmly congratulate Dr. Sean M. Wu, Assistant Professor of Medicine, Division of Cardiovascular Medicine, Department of Medicine, and Institute for Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine, for receiving the NIH Director’s Pioneer Award.
