Clinical medicine cannot evolve without the support of basic research. For the coming meeting, many programs will be available in plenary sessions and symposia with an emphasis on the importance of basic research. Translational research has long been recognized as important in linking basic research to clinical studies. You are encouraged to learn about the latest findings of basic research at the coming meeting, and to utilize it successfully in your clinical studies and translational research.
The meeting will also include a number of chairpersons' special sessions, including "Therapeutic Strategies for Coronary Arterial Disease from the Viewpoint of Vascular Function and Circulatory Disorders," "Preemptive Medicine in Cardiovascular Disease-Applying New Diagnostic Imaging Techniques and Biomarkers," and "Future Prospects for Large Registries."
