LHI-CFI Mini Symposium 2023

LHI-CFI Mini-Symposium

On March 2, 2023, the LHI and Center for Immunology (CFI) organized the first LHI-CFI Mini-Symposium. The goal of the symposium was to stimulate new collaborations and to consolidate existing collaborations in a high-priority area: the intersection of the immune system and the cardiovascular system. The symposium showcased three ongoing projects that highlighted the intersection of the immune system with three critical components of the cardiovascular system: the blood vessel, the heart muscle, and the heart valves. The three speakers were:
