Sex considerations in cardiovascular research – from bench to bedside

Human Heart and Circulatory System illustration

Cardiovascular disease accounts for 35% of all deaths in women. Yet, cardiovascular disease among women is still underdiagnosed and undertreated and women are underrepresented in clinical trials.

This symposium will bring together researchers with an interest in sex differences in cardiovascular disease from all career stages and will cover state-of-the-art methods and knowledge across the research and implementation spectrum, from bench to bedside. All are welcome to join us for what promises to be an exciting and interactive afternoon.

The symposium is jointly organised by the BHF Doctoral Training Programme at Imperial College London, The George Institute for Global Health, and The Dutch Heart Foundation IMPRESS consortium on Women and Heart Disease.
