Presenter Name Dikshya Bastakoty
Presentation Title Small molecule mediated inhibition of the Wnt pathway to regenerate the infarcted myocardium
Status This meeting has already occurred

Meeting Agenda/Notes

The Wnt pathway is activated in the heart after injury, but there is conflicting data regarding its effect on the heart. In this talk I will discuss our work showing that pharmacologic Wnt inhibition following myocardial infarct improves cardiac recovery by affecting multiple cell populations in the injured heart.
