WASHINGTON, Sept. 19 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --The Richard B. and Lynne V. Cheney Cardiovascular Institute and The Catherine Birch McCormick Genomics Center at The George Washington University host a cutting edge Symposium to examine the issues and implications around the growing forces of genomics and personalized medicine in cardiology. This symposium is intended to provide a valuable state-of-the-art update on the current status and future directions of the genomics of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, heart failure and cardiac arrhythmias, and the potential application to individualizing prevention, diagnosis and treatment for cardiac patients.

Medical molecular genetics is the next frontier with the potential to make dramatic breakthroughs in the prediction of disease and improvement of prevention, treatment, and quality of care.

The symposium agenda features luminaries in the field of genomics who will explore the state of cardiovascular genomics and how it relates to clinical practice. Keynote speakers include Elizabeth Nabel, MD, Director, National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute to address: Genomics & Coronary Artery Disease, and Andrew Plump, MD, Ph.D., Director of Clinical Molecular Profiling, Merck & Co., to discuss: Genomics for Developing Biomarkers.
