19th World Congress on Heart Disease - Annual Scientific Sessions 2014

  • Conference Call
  • It is our great plea­sure to invite you to par­tic­i­pate in the Inter­na­tional Acad­emy of Car­di­ol­ogy, Annual Sci­en­tific Ses­sions 2014, 19th World Con­gress on Heart Dis­ease held in Boston, MA, USA on July 25 – 28, 2014.

    The Con­gress will pro­vide the oppor­tu­nity for a com­pre­hen­sive overview of the lat­est research devel­op­ments in car­dio­vas­cu­lar med­i­cine, pri­mar­ily in the areas of mol­e­c­u­lar biol­ogy, coro­nary artery dis­ease, heart fail­ure, car­diac arrhyth­mias and car­diac surgery.

    Plans for this CME meet­ing are pro­gress­ing extremely well. Many dis­tin­guished car­di­ol­o­gists and sci­en­tists have agreed to join the fac­ulty par­tic­i­pat­ing in this Con­gress. Papers will be pre­sented in the form of ple­nary ses­sions, sym­posia and posters, and will include superb sci­en­tific mate­r­ial orig­i­nat­ing from numer­ous lab­o­ra­to­ries around the globe, assur­ing that the meet­ing will be a major sci­en­tific event.

    Pro­gram areas will range from clin­i­cal patho­phys­i­ol­ogy to eval­u­a­tion and strat­i­fi­ca­tion tech­niques and mol­e­c­u­lar and cel­lu­lar biol­ogy, includ­ing neu­ro­hu­moral, immuno­log­i­cal and genetic stud­ies. We will dis­cuss new and inno­v­a­tive diag­nos­tic meth­ods, pre­ven­tion and treat­ment of heart dis­ease, and prog­nos­tic algo­rithms. Inte­grated into the pro­gram will be an update on the lat­est major clin­i­cal trials.

    We hope that you will par­tic­i­pate in this Con­gress and sub­mit for pre­sen­ta­tion your most recent sci­en­tific work in the rapidly evolv­ing field of car­dio­vas­cu­lar disease.

    Your inter­ac­tion with your col­leagues from many dif­fer­ent coun­tries will stim­u­late a cre­ative exchange of ideas and will be per­son­ally reward­ing. We look for­ward to your active par­tic­i­pa­tion in the 19th World Con­gress on Heart Dis­ease and to wel­com­ing you to the beau­ti­ful city of Boston in July.
