I am especially excited about this inaugural webinair for the AHA Emerging Science Series. Viewers will see a presentation of a translational science project where investigators report the first in human application of tissue engineered vascular grafts. This has great potential for transforming the surgical approach to vascular grafting. The second presentation is a fascinating analysis from an important new antiplatelet agent ---the US subgroup findings from the PLATO study. This will generate interesting discussion about the interpretation of subgroups from clinical trials and drug interactions between antiplatelet agents.

This novel venue for presenting the latest science is a wonderful extension of the efforts of CSSP, to deliver the best science in the cardiovascular community year-round under the banner of the AHA.

The PLATO US substudy raises a number of important questions that will attract the attention of clinical trialists, interventional cardiologists, and vascular biologists. Should be an interesting discussion.

I am pleased to see a translational science presentation in this first webinar of the AHA Emerging Science Series. Using allogeneic fibroblasts to build a tissue engineered vascular graft is a creative approach to a common clinical problem. I look forward to learning more about how this was done and the results in the first in human experience.

As the Director of the Adult Invasive and Interventional Cardiology Program in Nassau, The Bahamas, I am excited to join the panel to discuss the implications of the PLATO US subgroup findings. Clearly dual antiplatelet therapy is at the center of the pharmacologic support for PCI and we need to understand the optimal regimen to protect our patients.

I am very enthusiastic to hear more about tissue engineered vascular grafts. The science is quite provocative and the potential for clinical application is substantial!
