Cardiovascular Development and Repair
joint with Angiogenesis in Health and Disease
Organizer(s): Doris A. Taylor and Brian H. Annex
Date: February 28 - March 05, 2010
Location: Keystone Resort, Keystone, CO, USA
Sponsored by Gilead Sciences, Inc.
Summary of Meeting:
During fetal development, cardiocytes and vascular progenitors proliferate, coalesce and organize to form a nascent organ. Yet during adult mammalian life, these same cells are incapable of responding to repair injured heart. This Keystone Symposia meeting is designed: 1) to expose scientists in the field of cardiac and vascular repair to models of successful cardiac repair in lower vertebrates, 2) to discuss repair in the context of cardiac development and 3) to begin to ask what cues and targets from each may be applicable in the adult mammal. As a companion to and overlapping with an Angiogenesis meeting, it will provide meeting-goers access to both preclinical and clinical components of cardiac and vascular repair using cells, genes and small molecules.
