The 7th International Cardiovascular Genomic Medicine Conference

December 4 - December 5

‘Clinical Cardiology in the Genome Era- From Genome Diagnosis to Therapy of Inherited Cardiovascular Diseases’

The Biennial ‘7th International Conference on Cardiovascular Genomic Medicine Conference’ offers a unique opportunity for clinical cardiologists, specialist cardiac nurses, electrophysiologists, cardiovascular radiologists, cardiac pathologists, clinical geneticists, genetic counselors and molecular geneticists to learn and share the fast emerging practice of cardiovascular genomic medicine.

World class Faculty of experts in all fields of cardiovascular genetics & genomics and genomic medicine will join the wide ranging participants from UK, Europe and rest of the World. The programme includes plenary lectures, keynote presentations, open platform and poster presentations and seminars on selected topics.

This conference is the 7th as part of the original series of Biennial ‘Cardiff Cardiovascular Genetics Conference’ held since 2007. All previous events were grand successes admired by several clinicians, health professionals and researchers from all over the world.
