Registration Deadline is October 10th. - REGISTER ONLINE


Cardiovascular Meetings

We hope you will be at one of the Center for Cardivascular Diseases and Sciences sponsored cardiovascular meetings available every Monday from 12:00 – 1:00 pm. The first Monday of each month will feature the Cardiovascular Seminar series, with a full lunch provided to the first 60 attendees. Organized by Dr. Karen Stokes and Dr. Shenu Bhuiyan, this popular seminar series will include leading cardiovascular and cerebrovascular basic scientists and clinicians from across the US. On the third Monday of every other month make plans to attend the Clinical Cardiovascular Conference. Organized by Dr. Horacio D’Agostino and Dr. Matthew Woolard, the Clinical Cardiovascular Conference will feature clinical presentations in areas such as vascular surgery, radiology and cardiology.

Cardiovascular Training Group

The Cardiovascular Training Group (CVTG) will meet on the last Monday of each month (the week prior to the Cardiovascular Seminar Series). The mission of the CVTG is to provide an opportunity for graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and residents to gain better understanding of cardiovascular pathophysiology. Dr. Karen Stokes will preside over relevant literature discussions from key articles provided by the CCDS invited seminar speaker. By dedicating an hour every Monday to Cardiovascular Disease, the CCDS will continue to build and grow cardiovascular research on campus and forge a lasting association between our basic science and clinical faculty. So, mark your calendars now and plan to attend as often as possible!
