Why You Should Attend

The BCVS Scientific Sessions convenes basic and translational cardiovascular scientists from around the world with the common goal to discover pathways to cardiovascular therapeutics and promoting cardiovascular health. This meeting has become the “go to” meeting for intra- and interdisciplinary cross-fertilization of ideas and incorporation of new approaches from the general scientific community and plays a pivotal role in the training of junior scientists and trainees.

The program will be of special interest to basic cardiovascular scientists, molecular/ cellular biologists, physiologists, translational investigators, clinical trialists, practicing cardiologists, cardiovascular nurses and pharmacists. In addition, the symposium will be of great value to scientists and executives of pharmaceutical companies and biotechnology firms who are in the cardiovascular space.

The second annual Asian Cardiovascular Symposium will be held one day prior to the official BCVS Scientific Sessions on Sunday, July 26. The symposium is not part of the official BCVS program and will have a separate registration fee.

The event will be hosted by the following Asian cardiovascular groups:

  • Academy of Cardiovascular Research Excellence (ACRE)
  • Japanese Cardiovascular Group (JCS)
  • Korean Cardiovascular Society (KCS)
  • South Asian Heart Association (SAHA)
