New Frontiers in Cardiovascular Genetics Beyond GWAS

This meeting will highlight the latest advances in the field and new approaches in genomics and genetics applied to cardiovascular disease and risk factors. Research in the areas of DNA and RNA sequencing and bioinformatics, as it relates to heart failure, sudden cardiac death, and coronary artery disease will be presented from the perspectives of academia and industry around the world. Challenges in the pursuit of translating genetic findings into diagnostic tests and therapies will be discussed by leading experts who have identified new strategies. The sessions feature state-of-the-art talks in genome biology and genome sequencing for guiding medicine decisions, clinical trial designs, and tailored medical treatments. This meeting offers a rare and unique opportunity to explore the most current breakthroughs in genetics and personalized medicine from within and outside the field of cardiovascular biology. As such, the program for this meeting is highly likely to attract a wide variety of investigators, many of whom might not otherwise interact.
