Professors, scientists, cardiologists and research scholars working in the field of cardiac health attended the conference
DPSR University recently organised an international conference on ‘Recent Advances in Heart Health and Research”. Professors, scientists, cardiologists and research scholars working in the field of cardiac health attended the conference. Speakers include Prof (Dr) Ren Ki Li, Prof (Dr) Pawan Singhal, Prof (Dr) Shridhar Dwivedi, Prof (Dr) Sanjiv Dhingra, and Prof (Dr) Qadar Pasha.

He talked about the role of genes in pathogenesis as well as modulation of hypertension.
Dhingra presented his work on the cardiac stem cell therapy. He focused on pharmacological and genetic interventions to study molecular mechanisms responsible for alterations that lead to changes in immune characteristics of stem cells following differentiation.
