The Cardiovascular Development and Repair Department at the Centro Nacional de Investigaciones Cardiovasculares (CNIC) was pleased to host the 21st edition of the Weinstein Cardiovascular Development Conference. 2014 Conference was held at the Ilustre Colegio de Médicos de Madrid (Illustrious Official College of Physicians of Madrid), Spain, located in the historical city center.

2015 Weinstein Conference will be hosted by Boston Children’s Hospital, April 30 - May 2:

The Weinstein Meeting provides platform talks and posters on all aspects of heart development and congenital heart disease. The meeting schedule includes discussion times, poster sessions, meals and free time, all intended to promote interaction and collaboration.  As is traditional for this meeting, all talks will be selected from submitted abstracts to feature the most exciting new work in the field.  Investigators, postdocs and students are encouraged to submit their work.  As there is not enough time for everyone to present, we feature extensive poster time to maximize interaction.

Three keynotes speakers, leaders in their fields, are included in the program: A. Nieto (Spain), R. Adams (Germany) and V. Fuster (USA and Spain).

The following organizations have provided funds to support travel awards for junior scientists: American Association of Anatomists,  American Heart Association, Developmental Dynamics, and March of Dimes.  A final decision from the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute at NIH is pending.  

In addition, The Company of Biologists has funded a number of registration fee awards for junior researchers (predoc/postdoc - less than 2 year after PhD).

Abstract submission is required for travel / registration awards application. The award selection will be based on the scientific merit of the submitted abstract.
