BCVS 2015
The goal of the Basic Cardiovascular Sciences (BCVS) annual meeting is to improve the understanding of the mechanisms of cardiovascular regulation in order to support the development of new therapies and insights into clinical disease. Special emphasis is placed on integrating molecular/cellular and physiological approaches to address problems relating to functional genomics, cell signaling, myocardial biology, circulatory physiology, pathophysiology, new modeling and screening technologies and peripheral vascular disease.

Learning Objectives 

At the completion of this course, the learner will be able to:

  1. Evaluate the most recent evidence supporting the use of cardioprotective strategies in the setting of acute myocardial infarction.
  1. Discuss advances in understanding the underlying mechanisms of cardiomyopathies and the identification of new therapeutic targets.
  1. Assess new models for the use of cell- and gene-based therapies in repairing damaged cardiac tissue.
  1. Examine progress in the development of novel therapeutic targets for heart failure.
  1. Identify new targets for drug discovery and opportunities to participate in the translational research required to identify new interventions and bring them into clinical trials.
