Abstract

The 11th Annual Weinstein Cardiovascular Development Conference was held May 19-22, 2005 at the Westward Look Resort and Conference Center in Tucson, Arizona. The Westward Look was the site of the 6th Weinstein Meeting in 1999, and this year, 330 basic research scientists and research clinicians returned to Tucson for 3 days of meetings, Mariachis, and margaritas. The meeting was hosted by the cardiovascular research group at the University of Arizona and offered flavors of the desert southwest that included record temperatures, the Skopopelli conference logo modified from the Kokopelli of Native American mythology (Fig. 1), and liberal use of a cattle prod to encourage speaker timeliness.
