All Johns Hopkins faculty, staff and students are invited to attend the eighth annual Johns Hopkins Cardiovascular Research Retreat on Friday, May 19, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health (Sommer and Feinstone Auditoriums).

Continental breakfast will be served from 8:00 a.m. to 8:30 a.m.

I am glad to announce we will continue this very successful series. Once again, the retreat will last for a full day. Starting in the morning, there will be four outstanding speakers presenting cutting-edge science, covering everything from basic molecular studies to imaging to public health. We will break for lunch and reconvene in the afternoon to learn about the work of our students and fellows. All are encouraged to submit abstracts through the online portal. These will be reviewed prior to the retreat, and the top four—two representing basic research and two clinical/epi research—will present in an oral presentation. Then, there will be a two-hour poster session and prizes awarded for these sessions.

As in prior years, we will provide a deadline for online abstract submissions, which will be about two weeks prior to the meeting. Our space is limited, so only one abstract per person will be allowed this year, as the number of submissions has grown. This will also solve some of the issues from prior years regarding the prizes. I look forward to seeing you there.
