I just came back from dinner at the Buchheim Museum and now I have a bit of time to write a few words before falling asleep.
Today the talks were about experimental studies with three presentations from our group (Zouhair, Maria, and Jaafar). All experimental studies conducted within "CADgenomics network" are about understanding the functional role of CAD risk genes using cellular models generated by using gene editing and animal models including Knockout mice, in order to understand the underlying pathomechanisms.
After the last meeting held in Los Angeles, this time we met at Schloss Höhenried at the Starnberger See nearby Munich.
The meeting is a great opportunity for all of us to meet people coming from other disciplines including Statistics, Bioinformatics, Biology, and Medicine, as well as from different educational level, from PhD students to Senior Scientists.
It’s a great pleasure to meet all the people working together to understand the genetics of coronary artery disease and myocardial infarction.
