FOCUS ON RESEARCH: Researching Today for Tomorrow's Patients
With her research, Omaida C. Velazquez, MD, searches for "what’s missing today that we can make available for tomorrow’s patients."
She presented at the 2017 Vascular Research Initiatives Conference, discussing gene therapy and peripheral arterial disease. Abstracts are being accepted through Jan. 10, 2018, for the May 9 conference.
