About 

The Vascular Research Initiatives Conference (VRIC) emphasizes emerging vascular science and encourages interactive participation of attendees. VRIC provides unique opportunities to meet with international colleagues with vast research interests and expertise and share information about new and emerging research in vascular surgery research. Scheduled the day before Vascular Discovery Scientific Sessions, VRIC is considered a key event for connecting with vascular researchers.

2020 Learning Objectives
 

ABSTRACT SESSION I: HEMOSTASIS, THROMBOSIS, AND DISCOVERY SCIENCE FOR VENOUS DISEASE

     1. Discuss the current use of animal models elucidating the pathophysiology of hemostasis and thrombosis in both arterial and venous disease.
     2. Identify new areas of basic and methodological research in hemostasis and thrombosis in both arterial and venous disease.
     3. Describe new venues of current clinical and translational research in hemostasis and thrombosis in both arterial and venous disease.

ABSTRACT SESSION II: VASCULAR REGENERATION, STEM CELLS AND WOUND HEALING

     1. Discuss the current use of animal, cellular, and mathematical models elucidating the pathophysiology of stem cells, wound healing and vascular healing and regeneration.
     2. Identify new areas of basic and methodological research in stem cells, wound healing and vascular healing and regeneration.
     3. Describe new venues of current clinical and translational research in stem cells, wound healing and vascular regeneration.

ABSTRACT SESSION III: AORTOPATHIES AND NOVEL VASCULAR DEVICES

     1. Discuss the current use of animal models in understanding aortic disease.
     2. Identify new areas of basic and methodological research in pathologic arterial remodeling and molecular targets of next stage vascular therapeutics.
     3. Describe new venues of current clinical and translational research in the development of vascular devices to meet the varied needs of vascular patients.

ABSTRACT SESSION IV: ATHEROSCLEROSIS, ARTERIAL INJURY AND DIABETES 

     1. Discuss the novel dietary components of peripheral arterial disease (PAD), novel perfusion imaging of PAD, and the role of the microvasculature on skeletal muscle function in PAD patients.
     2. Identify new mechanisms of basic and translational in PAD.
     3. Describe mechanisms of arterial fibrosis and calcification in PAD.

Translational Session
 

    1. Discuss the physiologic and mechanistic disruptions that underlie innate immune cells in cardiovascular diseases.
    2. Identify novel models and mechanisms in atherosclerosis and other cardiovascular diseases.
    3. Describe cutting edge technology to explore alterations in innate immune cell phenotype in atherosclerosis and other cardiovascular diseases.
