Our circulatory system, 100,000 km of vessels per person, comprises the heart along with our arteries and veins, and delivers nutrients and oxygen to all cells in the body. Not unlike pipeline networks within the energy industry, a blockage or leak in our circulatory system could be catastrophic. Come listen to leading clinicians and researchers as they discuss the innovative discoveries being made in vascular science at the Libin Institute.
