On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is our great pleasure to invite you at the 3rd Utah Cardiac Recovery Symposium (U-CARS), which will be held on January 16–17, 2015 at the University of Utah School of Medicine in Salt Lake City, UT, in the Eccles Health Sciences Education Building’s Alumni Hall.

The objective of this conference is to bring together thought leaders to exchange ideas, debate paradigms, and share information directly focused on issues related to myocardial recovery and regeneration. Last year, more than 350 attendees from all over the world participated in the symposium. Past keynote addresses were delivered by Sir Magdi Yacoub, MD, Eduardo Marban, MD/PhD, and Karl Swedberg, MD/PhD. The upcoming U-CARS symposium topics will expand across the basic, translational, and clinical sciences to provide a unique forum to push the field of heart recovery forward.
