The Gulf Coast Vascular Research Consortium is the annual conference highlighting cutting edge research in Vascular Biology from world-renowned laboratories across the Gulf Coast region. This year, the Houston Methodist Research Institute is proud to host this unique event from August 23-24.

Attendees will be exposed to the latest advances in key areas of vascular biology – including vascular development and differentiation, endothelial biology and inflammation, vascular aging and regeneration, genetic and epigenetic mechanisms of vascular disease, lymphatic and venous pathobiology, vascular imaging and bioengineering – and how these insights are being translated into novel therapies for patients.

By bringing together a critical mass of scientific pioneers and educators, the annual Gulf Coast Vascular Research Consortium will facilitate knowledge transfer, novel insights and new collaborations


This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of Houston Methodist and the Gulf Coast Vascular Research Consortium.
