Cardiovascular diseases are the world’s largest killers, claiming 17.1 million lives a year. Still, major progress has been made in treating these diseases, especially against chronic coronary atherosclerosis, the most common serious cardiovascular disease.

Along with plans for a close research cooperation between the University Hospital of Toulouse (Pr. Michel Galinier) and Saint-Joseph’s Research Institute in Atlanta, a research symposium about translational treatment for cardiovascular disease will be organized to bring together doctors and researchers from:

Saint-Joseph’s Research Institute: Dr. Spencer King, Nicholas Chronos, Jack Chen, Doug Murphy, Sudir Srivastava and Jack O’Connell;
CHU Toulouse-Rangueil Hospital: Dr. Atul Pathak, Jerôme Roncalli and Philippe Rouet;
Clinique Pasteur at Toulouse: Dr. Jean Marco.

As a special feature of the symposium, a lunch will be prepared for the participants by the Executive Chef Roger Michel (Westin Hotel – Savannah, GA) illustrating “The French Paradox” (the idea that the French people eat foods high in fat, drink wine and rarely participate in structured exercise, yet have lower instances of obesity and heart disease than other countries).

Registration is required by November 29, 2010.
