UCSF celebrates opening of new vascular research laboratory

The UCSF division of vascular surgery, along with the UCSF division of biomedical sciences and the Cardiovascular Research Institute, is sponsoring a symposium to celebrate the opening of the Pacific Vascular Research Laboratory.

The new UCSF laboratory, funded by a $6.5 million grant from the Pacific Vascular Research Foundation and the Wayne and Gladys Valley Foundation, represents a collaboration between scientists and physicians working to generate and transfer new knowledge about vascular diseases into safer and more effective treatments.

The symposium on angiogenesis the growth of vessels from existing capillaries -- will feature presentations from distinguished speakers:

1:15 1:45 Rong Wang, PhD, UCSF assistant professor of surgery and anatomy and director of the Pacific Vascular Research Laboratory.
Elucidating the genetic control of angiogenesis using conditional transgenic mice.
