GenTAC Aortic Summit

The GenTAC Aortic Summit is one of the premier meetings in the world focused on sharing knowledge and advancing research on genetic aortic and vascular conditions.

The GenTAC Aortic Summit is a biennial event that originated in 2009 as an activity of the NIH-sponsored National Registry of Genetically Triggered Thoracic Aortic Aneurysms and Cardiovascular Conditions (GenTAC Registry).

The objectives of the meeting are to share current knowledge of the scientific underpinnings of genetic aortic and vascular conditions; review current best practices related to diagnosis and treatment; and foster scientific and educational exchange amongst researchers, healthcare professionals, institutions, lay organizations, and others interested in genetic aortic and vascular conditions.
