Congratulations to doctors Heather Gornik and Jeffrey Olin who Co-Chaired the First International Fibromuscular Dysplasia Network Symposium in Cleveland Ohio.
This meeting gathered key researchers and clinical thought leaders in the field of FMD for a state-of-the-art review of the existing knowledge base and current research activities related to FMD in the United States and abroad. A large proportion of the meeting was focused on the creation of an FMD research network, comprised of four focused working groups on various aspects of FMD research (epidemiology, genetics, research registries, and imaging and clinical therapeutics).
To view all abstracts presented and learn more about the Symposium and working groups, please follow this link.
