New Approaches to an Old Disease: Therapeutic Discovery for Heart Failure
|The keynote speaker is Burns C. Blaxall, Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Cincinnati and Director of Translational Research at the Heart Institute of Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. The Heart Institute integrates research and clinical programs and is making significant progress toward the ultimate goal of eliminating heart disease. Dr. Blaxall’s research accomplishments have enabled identification of molecular pathways leading to heart failure and, importantly, to the discovery of next generation therapies that offer protection against the disease.
Invited symposium speakers also include Vincent Tropepe, Director of the Human Biology Program and Associate Professor of Cell and Systems Biology of the University at Toronto and Anton M. Bennett, Professor of Pharmacology and of Comparative Medicine; Co-Director, Program in Integrative Cell Signaling and Neurobiology of Metabolism at Yale University.
