Dissecting the Vasculature: Function, Molecular Mechanisms and Malfunction
joint with Complications of Diabetes and Obesity
Organizer(s): Stephanie Wengert Watts, Nancy J. Rusch and William F. Jackson
Date: February 24 - March 01, 2009
Location: Fairmont Hotel Vancouver, Vancouver, BC, Canada
Supported by the Directors' Fund
Summary of Meeting:
The goal of this meeting is to present the most current research on the vasculature by breaking down the blood vessel into individual cells (endothelium, smooth muscle and nerve) and examine the function of organelles (nucleus, ER, plasma membrane) within each cell type. This work will be synthesized into the whole blood vessel, and a focus given to vessel dysfunction in hypertension and—as is highlighted by a concurrent meeting—diabetes. Workshops will support young investigators, and techniques specific to studying the vasculature. Attendees should take away an appreciation for the complexity and beauty of the vasculature.
