IVB/MHI Annual Research Symposium
March 5 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
UNC’s Integrative Vascular Biology (IVB) T32 Training Program and the McAllister Heart Institute (MHI) jointly announce their Annual Research Symposium on Tuesday, March 5, 2019. This year’s event will be held from 9AM – 5PM at the George Watts Hill Alumni Center on the UNC campus (150 Stadium Drive, Chapel Hill, NC 27514).
The symposium highlights research from graduate students, postdocs, and medical fellows within the cardiovascular community at UNC and the greater Chapel Hill area and promotes multi-disciplinary collaborative research in this important field. This year’s keynote speakers will be Lance L. Munn (Harvard) who uses biomedical engineering approaches to study blood vessel structure and function and Joseph A. Hill (UT Southwestern) whose research is focused on deciphering the mechanisms that control cardiac remodeling. Dr. Munn will present a talk entitled “Endothelial mechanobiology and morphogenesis” while Dr. Hill will present on “Heart failure: Two inflammatory tales”.
