The ATVB Council focuses on arteriosclerosis, thrombosis and vascular biology. The council advances research, addresses prevention, improves diagnosis and treatment, and works actively with other organizations. It shares reliable information through its annual conference, awards and lectures, and in the AHA’s journal, Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis, and Vascular Biology.


Since 1999, the BCVS Council has advanced understanding of mechanisms of basic cardiovascular regulation to support insights into cardiovascular disease and facilitate new therapies. Emphasis is on integrating molecular/cellular and physiological approaches to address problems relating to genomics, cell signaling, myocardial biology, circulatory physiology, pathophysiology, and peripheral vascular disease.


The GPM Council seeks to advance discovery and translation of biological insights from genetics and omics technologies to improve cardiovascular and brain health through better risk prediction, treatment and prevention for patients. Our expertise spans genetics, genomics, genomic medicine, epigenetics, transcriptomics, metabolomics, proteomics, microbiome, bioinformatics, computational science, and population health.
