Engineering and medicine are grass-routes disciplines. Both grow by responding to practical needs and thrive on the progress of science and technology. Most noticeable is the huge effect that modern technology, associated with new macro and micro imaging techniques and molecular scale diagnostic technologies, had on expanding the frontiers of medical science, and cardiology in particular. Utilizing better diagnostic tools and more effective therapeutic modalities had a very significant effect on our lives.

The developments in science in the last 40 years or so have catalyzed a transformation from the classical studies of the macro world of living organisms and whole organs to the micro/nano world of elementary units, the genes and the cells. In this workshop we demonstrate what we have seen and nurtured in the evolution of cardiovascular research from physiology and rheology to a new era of dynamic studies based on combining molecular biology , cellular and genetic engineering and modern imaging techniques , all aimed at preventing illness and repairing the ailing heart.
