/ by UK HealthCare

Last week on Sept. 21, more than 200 faculty, staff and trainees from across the nation attended the 21st UK Gill Heart & Vascular Institute‘s Cardiovascular Research Day to share the latest research on cardiovascular health.

The event showcased the research of postdoctoral fellows, students and faculty. Most of the research focused on the prevention or reversal of cardiovascular diseases, including heart attacks and strokes.

This year’s event featured two judged poster sessions, four trainee presentations and a research blitz of one-minute research presentations. Gregory Graf, PhD, professor in the UK College of Pharmacy, and Ming Gong, PhD, and Scott Gordon, PhD, both of the Saha Cardiovascular Research Center, were the faculty presenters.
