Council on Basic Cardiovascular Sciences (BCVS)

Ronglih Liao, PhD, FAHA

The American Heart Association (AHA) created the Council on Basic Cardiovascular Sciences (BCVS) in 1999 to promote research and education. Our goal is to improve understanding of mechanisms of basic cardiovascular regulation to support the development of new therapies and insights into clinical cardiovascular disease. Special emphasis is placed on integrating molecular/cellular and physiological approaches to address problems relating to functional genomics, cell signaling, myocardial biology, circulatory physiology, pathophysiology and peripheral vascular disease.

Council on Genomic and Precision Medicine (GPM)

Svati Shah, MD, MS, MHS, FAHA

The mission of the American Heart Association Council on Genomic and Precision Medicine (GPM) is to advance the discovery and translation of biological insights gained from genetics and omics technologies to improve cardiovascular and brain health. Our constituency’s expertise spans across genetics, genomics, epigenetics, transcriptomics, metabolomics, proteomics, microbiome, bioinformatics, computational science, population health, clinical genetics and genomic medicine, with the ultimate goal of more precise risk prediction, treatment and prevention for patients and the population. Integral to the American Heart Association’s goals, the GPM Council provides a premier inter-disciplinary forum promoting and integrating new knowledge from molecules to populations in translational cardiovascular science and precision medicine.
