The NHLBI 2022 Novel Retinal Biomarkers for Hypertension and Cardiovascular Disease Virtual Workshop will be held on October 13-14, 2022.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) will host the virtual 2022 Novel Retinal Biomarkers for Hypertension and Cardiovascular Disease Virtual Workshop on October 13-14, 2022, from 12:00 PM - 5:00 PM EDT.
This workshop will review the state of the current science and evidence for links between various retinal biomarkers, including retinal imaging biomarkers and hypertension, heart disease, peripheral arterial disease, and vascular dementia. In addition, the workshop will identify research gaps and opportunities inhibiting progress in understanding these essential connections.
Emerging evidence suggests a close relationship between retinal vessel morphometry and hypertension. However, besides some observational association studies, little is known about the mechanisms of retinal vascular changes due to hypertension. Imaging and genetic biomarkers in retinal vessels can offer pathways for improving the ability to diagnose, prognosis, and manage hypertension, heart failure, peripheral arterial disease, and vascular dementia and can significantly advance our knowledge. This workshop will also connect the presence of hypertensive or diabetic retinopathy can provide prognostic information on the risk of cardiovascular disease, congestive heart failure, and end-organ damage and may alert for more widespread systemic morbidity.
This workshop is open to the public and will be recorded.
The International Ocular Circulation Society (IOCS) promotes research in the field of ocular circulation. The field of ocular circulation is broadly interpreted to include ocular blood flow, angiography, angiogenesis, ischemia, oximetry, vascular anatomy, vascular physiology, vascular pathophysiology, and treatment of vascular diseases. An important goal is to foster international exchange of knowledge, ideas, methods, and technologies to accelerate progress in our area of research. The IOCS membership currently comprise 171 full members and 19 in-training members from 17 countries. Full members must be active researchers who have made significant contributions to our field. We encourage qualified researchers to join our society. There is currently no membership due. https://ocularcirculation.org/become-a-member
IOCS holds international scientific meetings every other year and hosts discussions between scientists, engineers, physicians, professional societies, and commercial companies. Our next meeting will be in Kyoto, Japan on September 24-26, 2021. We are now accepting abstracts for this conference. https://ocularcirculation.org/2021-iocs-conference
IOCS is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization devoted to the promotion of scientific research. We accept charitable donations.
