Utah Cardiac Recovery Symposium 2016
On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it was our great pleasure to host the 4th Utah Cardiac Recovery Symposium (U-CARS), which was held on January 14-15, 2016 at the University of Utah School of Medicine in Salt Lake City, UT.
The objective of this conference was to bring together thought leaders to exchange ideas, debate paradigms, and share information directly focused on issues related to myocardial recovery and regeneration.
This year, more than 450 attendees from all over the world participated in the symposium. Keynote addresses were delivered by Jay Cohn, MD, and Philippe Menasche, MD, with Jeroen J Bax, MD, PhD as a featured guest. The 2016 U-CARS symposium topics expanded across the basic, translational, and clinical sciences to provide a unique forum to push the field of heart recovery forward.
