In an effort to connect University of South Carolina researchers interested in cardiovascular research, the School of Medicine’s Department of Cell Biology and Anatomy and the Instrumentation Resource Facility are hosting the Carolina Cardiovascular Retreat on Dec. 18.
“We are excited to host this opportunity for researchers from across campus to connect with one another and learn about the exciting work taking place in the university’s various colleges and departments,” says Wayne Carver, Ph.D., chair of the Department of Cell Biology and Anatomy.
The event will feature presentations by researchers from the School of Medicine, the College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Engineering and Computing, the Arnold School of Public Health and the Dorn VA Medical Center.
Areas ranging from cardiac biomechanics and vascular remodeling to genetic models of valve disease and new therapeutics for heart failure will be discussed. Speakers will be presenting their lab's techniques and challenges facing them in their studies. Discussions will benefit all areas of biomedical research.
The event will be held at the School of Medicine campus located at 6311 Garners Ferry Road from 7:30 a.m. until 3:45 p.m. There will also be a student poster session from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m.
The event is open to faculty, staff and students involved in or interested in cardiovascular research.
RSVP is strongly encouraged. Contact Heather Willingham at Heather.Willingham@uscmed.sc.edu to register. Students interested in participating in the poster session can contact Jay Potts, Ph.D., at Jay.Potts@uscmed.sc.edu.
