Why Attend?

The Basic Cardiovascular Sciences (BCVS) conference is considered by many to be the premier cardiovascular research meeting in the world and attracts leading researchers in fields such as microRNAs, cardiac gene and cell therapy, cardiac development and most recently tissue engineering and iPS cells.  2014 marks the 10th anniversary of this meeting which has become the cardiovascular conference of choice for many investigators and trainees making it the largest meeting of its kind for basic and translational cardiovascular scientists.

The agenda which will begin at 8 a.m. on Monday, July 14 represents an ambitious, fast-paced meeting with 17 sessions over 3 1/2 days.  Invited speakers chosen on the basis of the outstanding nature and novelty of their research represent institutions from the United States, Europe, Japan and China.  This year we are inviting speakers from Latin/South America and Australia to widen our international scope and partnerships.

We continue to embrace the early career cardiovascular scientist with the plan to include one oral abstract from such scientists in a majority of the general sessions with one session dedicated to Outstanding Early Career 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 and an early career reception where young investigators will have the opportunity to socialize with members of the BCVS Leadership Committee.

Co-chairs of this year's meeting are Drs. Burns Blaxall-Cincinnati Children's Hospital, Ju Chen-University of California San Diego and Joseph Wu-Stanford Cardiovascular Institute.
