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.

The Sheraton Grand Seattle is located in the heart of downtown at 6th and Pike, and is within blocks of flagship shopping, local restaurants, and iconic attractions including Pike Place Market, the Space Needle and Chihuly Garden & Glass. The closest airport is Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.

Additional information about abstract & award submissions, hotel reservations and registration will be available soon.

We're looking forward to seeing you in May!
