The 11th annual BCVS 2015 Conference - Pathways to Cardiovascular Therapeutics has become the go to conference dealing with molecular cardiovascular biology and disease. Sponsored by the American Heart Association Basic Cardiovascular Sciences Council, the world’s leading organization of cardiovascular scientists, the conference attracts leading researchers in fields such as microRNAs, cardiac gene and cell therapy, cardiac development and most recently tissue engineering and iPS cells.
The planned agenda which will begin at 1:45 pm on Monday, July 13, includes 14 fast paced sessions over 3 ½ days set in a forum that promotes the relaxed exchange and discussion of cutting edge research in molecular and translational cardiovascular biology and disease. The program includes a diversity of speakers representing the best cardiovascular scientists from around the world. This year’s keynote lecture will be delivered by Dr. Eric Olson from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center.
The organizers continue to embrace the early career cardiovascular scientist with plans to include oral abstract presentations from up-and-coming investigators throughout the program, with one session dedicated for the Young Investigator Award presentations/competition. In addition to stimulating talks, posters from submitted abstracts will be presented in three sessions. The program will once again offer two lunch workshops targeting early career development with one workshop focusing on different transitioning career paths for trainees and new to 2015 will be a speed networking event.
