NEW! We are releasing bitesize educational videos addressing the 6 key questions on #vascularageing. Video 1: “What is vascular ageing and why should I care?” by Prof. Stéphane Laurent can be found on our YouTube channel NOW! https://youtu.be/YhLugaqgseQ #vasculartwitter Recorded webinars and future educational videos can and will be found here: Webinars and Educational Videos. Stay tuned! https://youtu.be/YhLugaqgseQ
Today, all working group leaders and vice-leaders, and the other Action roles (see Team) met for a virtual working group interaction workshop! It was a successful meeting to align all activities between the working groups. Working together to bridge the gaps between #science, #medicine, #engineering and #industry.
What are you working on? Professor Hendrik von Tengg-Kobligk works in the field of cardiovascular imaging and image-based quantitative analysis, including 4D MRI, computational fluid dynamics and 3D printing. For publications, see PubMed and Google Scholar.
In this fantastic talk, Peter Nilsson from Lund University, Sweden, presents an overview on aspects why some people display early vascular ageing and others do not. Furthermore, he talks about some possibilities to modify vascular ageing. Stay tuned for the next webinars! Today’s recorded webinar:
