2019-09-10

On June 29, 2019, the “4th China Precision Cardiovasology Summit (2019)” opened in Beijing. It was co-hosted by CAMS Fuwai Hospital, Precision Cardiovasology Branch of China International Exchange and Promotion Association for Medicine and Healthcare, Cardiovascular Disease Prevention and Treatment Branch of China International Exchange and Promotion Association for Medicine and Healthcare, Precision Cardiovasology Group of the Chinese Society for Cardiology under the Chinese Medical Association, State Key Laboratory of Cardiovascular Disease, China Association of Innovations, PUMC Training Center, and Molecular Cardiology of China.

 

 


Famous Chinese cardiologists attending and addressing the opening ceremony included Professor Lei Song (Executive Chairman of the Summit, CAMS Fuwai Hospital Medicine Management Committee Deputy Director, and former Hypertension Treatment Center Deputy Director), Professor Rutai Hui (Chairman of the Summit, former President of CAMS Fuwai Hospital, and former Director of the Hypertension Center), and Professor Zhe Zheng (Deputy Director of the National Center for Cardiovascular Diseases and Vice President of CAMS Fuwai Hospital). The opening ceremony was chaired by Song, who, first of all, introduced and summarized the rapid development and remarkable achievements of China's precision diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular diseases in terms of online/offline platform building, high-level multi-center cooperation, establishment of diagnosis & treatment practices, publicity, education and promotion of disciplinary concepts, as well as disciplinary communication, disciplinary transformation and innovation since the first summit, and pointed out the development direction and goals of precision cardiovasology in the future.


Under the theme of “Careful Management and Differential Treatment”, the summit consists of panel sessions of precision medicine disciplinary development forum, single-gene hereditary cardiovascular disease gene diagnosis guide forum, precision medicine diagnosis & treatment forum, cardiomyopathy precision diagnosis & treatment forum, precision medicine innovation and transformation forum, and Huaxia continued education forum on precision medicine of cardiovascular diseases. Meanwhile, the third forum of wardmates with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and the forum on precision medicine base and cooperative exchanges were held, the Single-gene Hereditary Cardiovascular Disease Gene Diagnosis Guide was released, the new book Cardiovascular Disease and Precision Medicine was released, and the national tour and clinical application training of Single-gene Hereditary Cardiovascular Disease Gene Diagnosis Guide was launched. Present at the summit were Qimin Zhan and Fuchu He, CAMS Fuwai Hospital Vice President Zhe Zheng, PUMC Vice President Shuyang Zhang, Xuanwu Hospital Capital Medical University Vice President Xunming Ji, Tianjin Medical University Vice President Yi Zhu, Professor Daowen Wang from HUST Tongji Medical College, and other topnotch Chinese experts in cardiovascular diseases, bioinformatics, molecular imaging, genetics, genetic reproductive medicine, and molecular diagnosis of disease. They made academic reports and exchanged views on disciplinary development and building, research transformation through innovation as well as clinical applications and practices of precision diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular diseases, etc., so as to make joint efforts promote the development of new disciplinaries and practices.


The summit attracted great attention from the media and the public. The Xinhua Daily Telegraph published an article titled “Cardiovascular Disease: from the ‘Darkest Hour’ to ‘Twilight’”, and a detailed report on the summit was also made at the third forum of wardmates with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. It reflects the influence of the summit and the discipline and signifies that we are embracing an era of precision medicine. As Song points out in his report, it is a consistent theme to take a down-to-earth attitude towards research, practice, promotion and implementation of precision diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular diseases, and make contributions to medical services of China. It is also the ideal that the organizer of the summit makes unremitting efforts to achieve, indicating the advent of an era in which we know, prevent and control diseases at the molecular level and from the perspective of individualization.
