Vascular Discovery 2024: From Genes to Medicine

AHA members share a laugh during the PVD Annual Business Luncheon.

Why You Should Attend Vascular Discovery Scientific Sessions

The primary goal of the Vascular Discovery: From Genes to Medicine Scientific Sessions is to provide a forum for the timely exchange of information about new and emerging scientific research in lipids and lipoproteins, arteriosclerosis, thrombosis, vascular biology, genomics, precision medicine, peripheral vascular disease, and vascular surgery.

One of the areas of emphasis for this conference is to encourage interactions between young scientists and more senior scientists in their research area to foster dialogue and facilitate the exchange of ideas. The format of the conference, with many invited presentations as well as a dedicated focus on poster presentations, is intended to maximize a thought-provoking flow of information and discourse among scientists.
