We are looking forward to welcoming you all to Liverpool on 24th June 2022.



We are pleased to announce that our Aorta: Structure to Rupture meeting will be taking place this year face-to-face at the University of Liverpool on Friday 24th June 2022.

This is an interdisciplinary meeting bringing together clinicians, engineers and life scientists to explore state-of-the-art in aortic pathology research. Key topics this year will include:

  • Biochemistry and biomechanics of ascending/thoracic aneurysms
  • Surgical challenges and risk prediction for dissections and aneurysms
  • Aortic stiffness and vascular ageing
  • Novel bioengineering techniques for vascular research including computational and experimental modelling/testing

We have a number of keynote speakers confirmed including:

Prof. John Elefteriades Yale School of Medicine, Yale University, USA

Prof. Vanessa Diaz Department of Mechanical Engineering, University College London

Prof. Yun Xu Department of Chemical Engineering, Imperial College

Catherine Fowler Aortic Dissection Charitable Trust

Prof. Kennedy Cruickshank King’s College and St Thomas’ & Guy’s Hospitals, London

Dr. Alex Fletcher BHF Centre for Cardiovascular Science, University of Edinburgh

We are accepting abstracts for the meeting until 31st March 2022. Abstracts should be submitted online using the following link: https://forms.gle/NWGSh361fWcuc1H97

Registration is required for all attendees: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/aorta-structure-to-rupture-2022-tickets-268077686577

The LABB group presented their work at the Liverpool Aortic Surgery Symposium VIII on 28th June 2019, which was attended by leading cardiothoracic surgeons from the UK and USA. Dr Jill Madine delivered a talk entitled 'Idiopathic degenerative thoracic aneurysms are associated with increased aortic medial amyloid'. Dr Riaz Akhtar gave a talk entitled 'Is bicuspid aortopathy associated with distinct patterns of matrix degradation?' Congratulations to Riaz who was awarded the Best abstract presentation for scientific research in Thoracic Aortic surgery.

Dr Hannah Davies gave a presentation on how computational approaches can help to understand how aortic medial amyloid could be involved in aneurysm development on 18th January 2019, at 4th N8 Biophysical and Biochemical Symposium on Computational and Experimental Methods in Biology
at the University of Sheffield.
