Connecting outstanding scientists nationally and internationally

A unified forum for the cardiovascular research community

The seminar is held Wednesdays from 12:00 to 1:00pm at Baylor College of Medicine.  There is no cost to attend, and the seminar is open to the public with a special focus toward postdoctoral fellows, scientists, researchers, and physicians.

This seminar series provides a unified forum for the cardiovascular research community within the Texas Medical Center to meet, and it connects us to outstanding scientists nationally and internationally.
