The International Society for Applied Cardiovascular Biology (ISACB) is devoted to enhancing discovery, development and clinical translation of cutting edge biomedical science for innovative, state of the art cardiovascular diagnostic and therapeutic modalities. Toward this end, it fosters communication among academic scientists, clinicians and industry-based scientists. ISACB is thus a key forum for discussion of solutions to difficult clinical, scientific and technical challenges related to the development, the validation and the establishment of safety and efficacy of diagnostic imaging and laboratory tests, advanced biomaterials, cardiovascular medical devices and innovations in cardiovascular tissue engineering and regenerative medical technologies.
