Each year, the Integrative Vascular Biology Program (IVB) and the McAllister Heart Institute (MHI) of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill come together to host the IVB/MHI Annual Cardiovascular Research Symposium. This year, the symposium will be held on March 13, 2018, at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  The symposium is an exciting opportunity to expose the local scientific community to new data generated by cardiovascular researchers in the Research Triangle area.  To achieve this goal, the symposium will host both poster and oral presentations by graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, medical residents, and faculty who are actively conducting research in cardiovascular biology and related disciplines.  Additionally, there will be two keynote addresses given. The first will be a joint address presented by Dr. Caroline E. Burns and Dr. C. Geoffrey Burns, Assistant Professors of Medicine at Harvard Medical School. The second keynote address will be given by Dr. Karen K. Hirschi, Professor of Medicine, Genetics, and Biomedical Engineering at the Yale School of Medicine. These speakers, who have been selected by students and faculty, respectively, are researchers at the cutting edge of vascular biology and should generate a great deal of interest for the symposium.
