Weinstein 2024 Conference

Hotel Bonaventure


We have the pleasure to invite you to attend the Weinstein Cardiovascular Development and Regeneration Conference that will take place in Hotel Bonaventure (Montreal, Canada) from May 15 to May 17, 2024.

The Weinstein Cardiovascular Development and Regeneration Conference is an annual, freestanding meeting that began from a series of annual meetings in which investigators funded by three separate RFAs on Cardiac Development came together in 1986, 1988, and 1990 under the direction of Constance Weinstein and colleagues at the NHLBI. After the final RFA expired in 1993, there was strong motivation to continue these fruitful and informative meetings in a different and extended format. In 1994, Dr. Roger Markwald organized the first independent meeting at MUSC in Charleston, and one year later, when the meeting was held at the University of Rochester, the meeting was formally named the “Weinstein Cardiovascular Development Conference” (or Weinstein Meeting) to honor Dr. Connie Weinstein upon her retirement from the NIH. In 1996, Dr. Clayton Buck and colleagues hosted the meeting at the University of Pennsylvania. During these first independent conferences, the general meeting organization and governance structure was established that continues today.

Since its inception, the Weinstein meeting has been the premier opportunity for researchers in the field of cardiovascular development to meet and share data and ideas. During this 3-day meeting, basic scientists, clinicians and physician-scientists interact and discuss many diverse aspects related to cardiovascular embryology and its impact on congenital heart disease and adult cardiac dysfunction. Our understanding of how the cardiovascular system develops has grown in direct relationship to expansion of the Weinstein Meeting, and thus its key objectives are to continue to promote a collegiate environment for dissemination and discussion of innovative scientific findings, and encourage interactions and collaborations. Additionally, innovative scientific objectives for the 2024 meeting will be announced!

We look forward to welcome you for our next conference in the vibrant city of Montreal!
