The Department of Biomedical Engineering will co-host the sixth annual NIH Cardiovascular Bioengineering (CVBE) Symposium on May 7-9, 2020 in Göttingen, Germany. The symposium continues to be unique in the world, featuring a combination of top international researchers and trainees in cardiovascular bioengineering.

The event will be another international collaboration, co-hosted and co-organized by UAB BME Chair Jay Zhang, M.D., Ph.D., and Wolfram Zimmerman, Ph.D., University Medical Center Göttingen.

The symposium provides a forum for trainees and junior investigators to present their work in the areas of gene editing, induced pluripotent stem cells, and cardiac stem cells in the context of heart failure, as well as general topics in cardiovascular bioengineering.

Additional topics will include vascular tissue engineering, cardiac development, exosomes, microRNAs, and mitochondria. Cardiac gene and cardiac cell therapy will be center stage.
