When: Aug 8-13, 2021 (not 2020)
Venue: Mount Holyoke College in South Hadley, MA, USA
Organizers: Chair: Hanjoong Jo at Emory and Georgia Tech
Vice Chairs: Kim van der Heiden at Erasmus Medical Center and Tzung Hsiai at UCLA
Overview: The new GRC on Biomechanics in Cardiovasulcar Biology and Disease is a continuation and expansion of the International Symposium on Biomechanics in Vascular Biology and Cardiovascular Disease, which began in Rotterdam but expanded to other cities, Atlanta, London, and Montreal. As our community grows in recent years, we decided to expand our meeting as a GRC to significantly improve the meeting quality and interactions among participants for better collaborations across different groups.
Our Mission is to bridge advances in inter-disciplinary, multi-institutional, and team science with discovery, education, and translation to understand and conquer the cardiovascular disease.
The Focus Areas: 1) cellular mechanosensors and signaling; 2) biomechanically-mediated initiation, progression, and rupture of atherosclerotic plaques and aneurysms; and 3) imaging and computation of atherosclerotic plaques and aneurysms.
