Cardiovascular disease remains the major cause of morbidity worldwide, and addressing this challenge demands the scientific attention of multiple disciplines.
This one day symposium, organised by the UCL Cardiometabolic Domain, is an opportunity to find out more about innovations in cardiovascular science research across UCL, Queen Mary University of London and UCL partner hospitals. The symposium will address key issues including chronic heart failure, hypertension and therapeutic innovations, and aims to create new cross-disciplinary links, and foster collaboration between basic and clinical researchers.
We will also host a poster presentation competition for early career researchers, to highlight the innovative research being undertaken in both basic and clinical sciences.
