20th Webinar on Cells

The Role of Inflammation in Atherosclerosis and Coronary Artery Disease

Dear Colleagues,

Atherosclerosis is the pathological basis of coronary artery disease, ischemic stroke, and peripheral arterial disease. Despite optimal treatment with drugs to alleviate hyperlipidemia and hypertension and prevent thrombotic complications, this disease continues to be the leading causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide. There is a medical need for developing new prevention and treatment strategies against atherosclerosis. With the support of this platform from Cells, we are pleased to hold this webinar which allows colleagues from all over the world to present and discuss their latest research with their peers. This webinar will cover topics related to the Special Issue, "The Role of Inflammation in Atherosclerosis and Coronary Artery Disease". We’re looking forward to an excellent meeting with scientists, clinicians, and trainees around the world.

Yours Sincerely,

Weibin Shi, MD, PhD
Professor of Radiology, Biochemistry & Molecular Genetics
University of Virginia
