Description of event:
New Frontiers in Cardiovascular Genetics Beyond GWAS (A2)
Scientific Organizers: Jennifer Hall and Stephen S. Rich
January 13—18, 2013
Granlibakken Resort, Tahoe City, California, USA
This meeting will highlight the latest advances in the field and new approaches in genomics
applied to cardiovascular disease
and risk factors. Research in the areas of DNA
and RNA sequencing
, as it relates to heart
failure, sudden cardiac death and coronary artery disease
, will be presented from the perspectives of academia and industry around the world. Challenges in the pursuit of translating genetic
findings into diagnostic
tests and therapies will be discussed by leading experts who have identified new strategies. The sessions feature state-of-the-art talks in genome biology
and genome sequencing
for guiding medicine
decisions, clinical trial
designs and tailored medical treatments. This meeting offers a rare and unique opportunity to explore the most current
breakthroughs in genetics
and personalized medicine
from within and outside the field of cardiovascular biology
. As such, the program for this meeting is highly likely to attract a wide variety of investigators, many of whom might not otherwise interact.
Granlibakken is located in the North Lake Tahoe area set back from the road in a beautiful, secluded, scenic valley 52 miles (84 km) southwest of Reno, Nevada.
