About This Meeting

Vascular Discovery: From Genes to Medicine is sponsored by the Council on Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis and Vascular Biology and the Peripheral Vascular Disease Council, in cooperation with the Council on Genomic and Precision Medicine, and the Society for Vascular Surgery. This meeting provides unique opportunities to meet with colleagues from around the world with wide-ranging research interests and expertise within the research communities of arteriosclerosis, thrombosis, vascular biology. The primary goal of this conference 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 and peripheral vascular disease.

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.

Target Audience

The conference will especially appeal to:
  • Basic scientists
  • Translational and clinical investigators
  • Clinicians interested in:
