All members of the Cardiac Sciences Program and Institute of Cardiovascular Sciences are invited as well as anyone else within the SBH/ U of M community conducting a scholarly program in cardiovascular sciences.
We will be conducting rapid fire (5 minute) oral communication sessions punctuated by state-of-the-art presentations by senior faculty.

To Do:
