Event description

Description

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.

Speakers and Topics:

Dr. Merril Knudtson CM - Intersection of doctors, plumbers and pigging: Coronary artery disease and the advent of interventional cardiology

Dr. Edward O’Brien - Hardening of the Arteries & Aging: Are Men & Women the Same?

Dr. Todd Anderson - Healthy endothelium, healthy heart

Dr. Jennifer MacRae - The kidney: Downstream processing within your vasculature

Dr. James White - 4D imaging and the prediction of future adverse events

A question and answer period will follow the presentations.
