11th Annual Cardiovascular Research Institute (CVRI) Symposium

April 10, 2024



April 10, 2024


There is a critical need to address the rapidly evolving landscape of medical research and technology, particularly in the field of cardiovascular health. As medical research and technology change rapidly, it is increasingly important for physicians, PhD faculty, residents, fellows, medical students, graduate school trainees, and other healthcare professionals to stay informed of new evidence. This symposium is designed as a platform to share and discuss state-of-the-art ongoing, innovative, and new cardiovascular research with the ultimate goal of translating research into clinical practice. Despite the abundance of new findings and technologies, there exists a knowledge gap among healthcare professionals regarding the latest developments in cardiovascular research and their application in clinical settings. Newly learned pathways can serve as potential mechanisms and alternative strategies in new research applications, but without awareness and understanding among healthcare professionals, these advancements may not be effectively integrated into patient care. Additionally, topics on how to apply new diagnostic and imaging techniques can create opportunities for collaboration with the developers of these techniques in new research protocols, fostering a multidisciplinary approach to improving cardiovascular care. Therefore, there is a critical need to address the knowledge gap and equip healthcare professionals with the necessary information and skills to leverage the latest advancements in cardiovascular research for the benefit of patient outcomes.


Physicians, Fellows, Residents, Trainees, Physician Assistants, and Nurses/Nurse Practitioners specializing in cardiovascular research and care, and all other practitioners interested in cardiovascular sciences
