The heart by its nature unifies many disciplines. The Stanford Cardiovascular Institute, established in 2004, consists of engineers, surgeons, physicians, scientists, and some of the country's brightest fellows and students.
In an era of constant change and innovation the Cardiovascular Institute leverages the incredible intellectual manpower found at Stanford University to prevent and treat disease. The Stanford School of Medicine, Stanford Hospital & Clinics, Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital, the Institute for Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine, Humanities & Sciences, Engineering, and Business schools are all located entirely on Stanford’s Silicon Valley campus. This intimate proximity promotes creative collaborations among a diverse mix of students, faculty, and scientists.
For this year’s annual meeting, we have asked selected CVI members and esteemed guests to share their exciting research. Whether it’s outcomes research, editing genomes, or building new technologies, the goal is to ensure a future in medicine where we can repair the damage of one of nature’s most precious organs.
