Microcirculatory Society (MCS) — Chair: William M Chilian — Co-Chair: Rolando E. Rumbaut
This session is designed to provide clinical, translational, and basic perspectives about research areas that may not necessarily be consdered as traditional microcirculation, but can provide new insights and approaches into how to enhance the translational aspects of basic microcirulatory research. The session will start with a talk from Dr. George Mensah of the NIH who will speak to the topic, "Microcirculation from Bench to Bedside and Beyond: Whither NHLBI?" The second presentation will be from Rong Wang of the University of California-San Francisco and will address the topic of how microcirculationists can consider using the techniques of lineage and fate tracking of cells in the microcirculation. The third talk will be from David Gutterman, who will address how basic scientists can use human vessels to study complex human diseases and aging with a vascular pathology. The fourth talk will be from William Weintraub and will focus on ow basic scientists can use information from clinical trials to formulate hypothesis that test basic mechanisms underlying a disease process.
