Wednesday, May 13, 2020 from 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EDT
The GenTAC Alliance Basic and Translational Science Working Group is tasked with accelerating research in genetically triggered aortic disease. We have identified a series of initiatives, including a set of webinars to increase the pace of research. In this webinar, the following experts will present their methods and results for single cell sequencing of aortic tissues:
Dr. Scott LeMaire,Professor and Vice-Chair for Research, Michael E. DeBakey Department of Surgery, Baylor College of Medicine
Dr. Ying Shen, Professor and Director of Aortic Disease Research Laboratory, Department of Surgery, Baylor College of Medicine
Dr. George Tellides,Professor of Cardiothoracic Surgery, Yale University
Moderator:Dr. Dianna Milewicz, Chair, GenTAC Basic and Translational Science Working Group; and President George H.W. Bush Chair of Cardiovascular Medicine; Vice Chair, Department of Internal Medicine; Professor and Director, Division of Medical Genetics
Please join in our efforts to share current knowledge of the scientific underpinnings of Genetic Aortic Disease; to review current best practices related to diagnosis and treatment and to foster scientific and educational exchange between scientists, clinicians, institutions, organizations, and the general public interested in genetic aortic conditions.
Since the last Summit, our Working Groups members have continued in their commitment to advancing research, education, and treatment of heritable aortic diseases. We are looking forward to seeing you all there and sharing our work!
Become part of our global network of researchers, clinicians, patients and family members, patient advocates, donors, and others committed to advancing research, education, and treatment of heritable aortic diseases.
