Extracellular Matrix and Cardiovascular Remodeling
Organizer(s): Merry L. Lindsey and Thomas K. Borg
Date: January 23 - 28, 2011
Location: Granlibakken Tahoe, Tahoe City, CA, USA
Supported by the Directors' Fund
Summary of Meeting:
In response to normal growth as well as a variety of pathophysiological signals, the cardiovascular system undergoes a series of structural and functional adaptations, collectively known as remodeling, that are directed responses to both the initial stimulus and to feed-forward changes that result from the precipitating event. Remodeling is driven by the extracellular matrix (ECM) environment, in terms of altered ECM levels, composition, and function. The purpose of this meeting is to bring together researchers, clinicians, and pharmaceutical industry representatives to 1) focus on controversies and knowledge gaps that still prevent or limit therapeutic translation; 2) borrow from other fields (particularly cancer and skin wound healing) to gain insight into ECM functions; and 3) to offer direction and stimulate progress in cardiovascular ECM research.
