On behalf of the U-CARS symposium planning committee, it is our great pleasure to host the 12th Annual Utah Cardiac Recovery Symposium (U-CARS) on February 8-9, 2024.
The 2024 U-CARS symposium will be hosted in person at the Salt Lake City Marriot University Park, located on the University of Utah campus in scenic Salt Lake City, Utah.  

The objective of this conference is to bring thought leaders together to exchange ideas, debate paradigms, and share information directly focused on issues related to myocardial recovery and regeneration.  Topics will expand across the basic, translational, and clinical sciences to provide a unique forum to push the field of heart recovery forward.

Last year hosted more than 900 registered participants with a broad range of national and international speakers. Past keynote addresses were delivered by Christine Seidman, Eugene Braunwald, Sir Magdi Yacoub, and other leading experts in cardiovascular health and disease.
