Speaker: Gary H. Gibbons, Director, National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, National Institutes of Health

For seven decades, research supported by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute has led to broad-based interventions that have improved morbidity, mortality, and quality of life for individuals with cardiovascular, pulmonary, and blood diseases and disorders. Despite substantial improvements in prevention and treatment, however, health disparities in both the burden and outcome of disease exist. In this forum, NHLBI Director Gary H. Gibbons will explore the institute’s scientific vision for the 21st century. He also will examine the unprecedented opportunities in basic discovery science, genomics, precision medicine, data science, and implementation science to transform clinical practice and potentially preempt and prevent chronic disease, enhancing health and health equity in all populations. Cohosted with Boston University School of Medicine.
