Cardiopalooza - Anually in mid-Summer

Cardio-Palooza is an annual research retreat to celebrate ongoing research and to foster future discoveries in cardiovascular science and medicine at UMN. Starting in 2009, the goal of the retreat is to enliven the entire UMN cardiovascular community and related constituents, under the direction the Department of Integrative Biology and Physiology in partnership with the Lillehei Heart Institute. Faculty and all active research members of their labs, highlighting students, fellows, trainees, lab managers present their latest work, which underlies the foundation of our interactions. All participants present their recent work (talks/posters will be selected) – emphasis will be on unpublished work and new directions. The poster session is robust and dynamic and always a retreat highlight.
