Scientifically, this year's program includes several highlights. On
Monday, we will feature a mini-symposium on Cerebrovascular
Function and Stroke. The speaker for the APS Keynote Lecture will be
Dr. Richard J. Roman from the Medical College of
Wisconsin. The Louis E. Alley Lecture, gratefully sponsored
by Dr. Alley's family through the Department of Exercise Science at
The University of Iowa, will be presented by Dr. John
S. Smeda from the Memorial University of Newfoundland, St. John's,
Canada. In addition, Dr. Nicanor I. Moldovan from the Dorothy
M. Davis Heart and Lung Research Institute, The Ohio State University,
Columbus, OH will present a Keynote Lecture on angiogenesis.
Finally, Trainee Awards will be granted for the best
abstracts and presentations from students and/or postdocs.
We are sure that the scientific program will be as attractive as the
venue of the meeting. The schedule of the meeting will certainly allow
you to personally interact with colleagues from Iowa and the
neighboring states and to build new friendships and collaborations.
I look forward to meeting you all.
