The Victor Chang has joined forces with the Heart Research Institute to host the Sydney Cardiovascular Symposium. This annual International Symposium will be the premier calendar event for NSW cardiovascular researchers and clinicians. This year the Symposium will be dedicated to exploring the impact of big data approaches, and the associated challenges, across the gamut of cardiovascular biology: from basic science through applied science, to clinical diagnosis and decision making.

The Symposium will begin with a public lecture series and discussion forum on the afternoon of Wed 6th, followed by a day dedicated to showcasing rising-star cardiovascular researchers and clinical trainees in NSW on Thurs 7th. The traditional International Symposium will take place on Friday 8th, and conclude with the VCCRI’s Princesses’ Lecture.

MacRae is leading the $75M ‘One Brave Idea’ to beat coronary heart disease by exploiting a diversity of big data. In addition, world experts in big data from Australia and abroad, will be covering topics from high throughput stem cell research, through to personalised medicine and e-health.
