Innovations in Cardiovascular Science - Monday 22 April 2013

Venue: UCL Institute of Child Health

This one day symposium will address some of the key issues that are facing cardiovascular scientists, including chronic heart failure, hypertension and therapeutic innovations.

The day will be a great opportunity for you to find out more about innovations in cardiovascular science research across UCL, Queen Mary University of London and UCL partner hospitals, and to create new cross-disciplinary links and foster collaboration between basic and clinical researchers.

There will also be a poster competition for early career researchers in both the basic and clinical sciences. First prize will be a £100 Amazon voucher, and there will also be runners up.
 
The deadline for submitting poster abstracts has now passed.
