Pathological and Physiological Regulation of Cardiac Hypertrophy
Organizer(s): Leslie A. Leinwand and Eric N. Olson
Date: January 13 - 18, 2008
Location: Copper Mountain Resort, Copper Mountain, CO, USA
Sponsored by Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research
Summary of Meeting:
Heart disease remains a leading cause of death and constitutes a complex array of disorders. This meeting will explore new areas of research on how the heart adapts to a wide variety of stimuli including exercise, diet, and genetic background. In the post-genome era, it is now possible to contemplate new heart disease therapies such as through tissue engineering, and stem cell and molecular therapies. The role of microRNAs in regulating cardiac development and disease is an exciting new field of study. We will also consider understanding the mechanisms that animals in nature use to regulate their hearts during hibernation and fasting and feeding.
