We're all back at work, after some great meeting days in San Diego. We attended the third meeting of the CAD genomics group, a consortia founded by Leducq. The Leducq foundation supports international collaboration in the field of cardiovascular research. Our devoted blog readers might have read some post about our previous meetings (Munich, NYC) and again, as always, we had a great time.

The CAD genomics meeting lasted three days, from Wednesday until Saturday. On the first day, we had general presentations from all the seven sites (LA, San Diego, NYC, Leicester, Paris, Munich and Lübeck). On the second day, we first discussed the functional implication and new scientific results of the 9p21 locus, the most famous CAD GWAS hit. In the second session that day, we had some updates by the bioinformatics group.
|First day first session. Jeanette joined with Skype (laptop).|

|Walking at the beach.|
|Too much walking.|
|Too much thinking.|
|Happy jumping scientists, with some happier than others?|
