Learning objectives

After watching the webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Understand recent technical developments in this rapidly evolving field;
  • Understand recent advances in defining immune and vascular cell function in CVD based on single-cell technologies;
  • Understand linking these new insights to patients (new diagnostics and risk factors for patient stratification, new therapeutics); and
  • Interpret results of studies using these techniques and facilitate their applications in drug discovery, risk stratification, and disease target identification.

Session Information

This webinar is designed for basic scientists interested in research related to atherosclerosis and vascular pathophysiology and for physician-scientists interested in using and interpreting results from the latest technological advances for application in clinical cardiology. Cardiologists wishing to update their scientific knowledge on the topic will find the session informative. 

During the webinar, attendees were encouraged to send questions by chat and to interact with our key opinion leaders, who provided live feedback.

Technical Settings

The webinar was available on PC and tablets. The use of a smartphone was not recommended.
