The 3rd Annual Harriet And Jerry Dempsey Research Conference
The 3rd Annual Harriet and Jerry Dempsey Research Conference will provide a behind-the-scenes look into the research that could soon transform health care, ranging from new ways to treat disease to better ways of working with patients.
The conference is part of a broader effort to do more high-profile medical research in South Carolina, a move that could mean better and lower-cost care for the state’s patients, and hosts some of the top minds in the health care industry.
It’s the latest effort to expand the collaboration between Clemson University and Prisma Health–Upstate, formerly known as Greenville Health System. The two institutions have several joint projects in the works, including a $10-million Center for Biomedical Research Excellence that was announced in October and also includes the Medical University of South Carolina.
The agenda includes:
- Tom Borg of the Medical University of South Carolina; Extracellular Matrix in Heart development regeneration; 8:45-9:30 a.m.
- Arash Kheradvar of the University of California, Irvine; Mitochondrial Transplantation for Cardiac Diseases; 9:30-10:15 a.m.
- Brian Denton of the University of Michigan; Data Analytics for Optimal Detection of Metastatic Prostate Cancer; 10:30-11:15 a.m.
- Raj Ratwani of MedStar Health; Understanding Physician Stress, Workflow, and Task Interruptions; 12:30-1:15 p.m.
