Abstract

Cardiovascular disease remains as the leading cause of death worldwide, and the technologies developed by different groups need to be communicated and shared with all related research communities for a boarder implementation. Challenges in imaging technology, mathematical modelling, material description, mechanical representation, disease progression, prediction methods, and final transition to clinical applications are calling for collaborative effort of the entire research community to act together and bring research effort closer to actual clinical applications. Researchers from different disciplines need to reach out to share their expertise, as well as to listen to other people to understand the big picture, understand what their discipline can contribute, what other discipline needs from their discipline that they are in, what their discipline can benefit from others, and figure out future research directions. Therefore, the Southeast University Biomechanics Laboratory was pleased to organize the first international symposium on Biomechanics and Mechanobiology in Cardiovascular System which was held in December 18-20 in Nanjing, China.
