Molecular Mechanisms of Cardiac Disease and Regeneration
Organizer(s): Stefanie Dimmeler and Michael D. Schneider
Date: February 19 - 24, 2006
Location: Eldorado Hotel & Spa, Santa Fe, NM, USA
Supported by The Director's Fund
Summary of Meeting:
Inadequate tissue perfusion and defects in the functional activity of cardiac myocytes are the leading cause of death in the Western world. This meeting will provide a comprehensive overview of novel developments in cardiovascular sciences and attempts to enforce interaction between cardiac and vascular areas. The first part of the meeting will focus on the regulation of cardiac development and vessel formation both in embryonic development as well as in the adult organism. Signaling cascades regulating cardiac remodeling and cardiomyopathy will be discussed in the second part. Finally, novel strategies for vessel repair and cardiac regeneration including potential insights from stem-cell-derived cardiomyocytes, and cell-based therapies, will be presented. As aging is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease a special session will focus on the molecular determinants of aging and its role in cardiac diseases.
