Pulmonary Hypertension Grand Rounds

The Vera Moulton Wall Center for Pulmonary Vascular Disease at Stanford is proud to announce a new and improved Pulmonary Hypertension Grand Rounds lecture series which officially launched September 2016. The CME Accredited series features case presentations and lectures by Wall Center faculty and staff as well as affiliated faculty from the Stanford community and guest lecturers from other medical centers.

The focus of this new series is to enhance the understanding of research and clinical topics associated with pulmonary vascular disease (PVD). We hope to attract both basic scientists and clinicians of various disciplines in this regard to our lectures. We look forward to in-depth discussions and debates on topics associated with PVD.
