International Biofluid Mechanics Symposium was held in Pasadena (California), under the auspices of the US National Committee on Biomechanics (USNCB), on December 12-14, 2003. The main objective of the symposium was to define the so-called 'show-stoppers' in reaching a comprehensive understanding of bio-fluid mechanics and cardiovascular hemodynamics from cell to organs. The conference highlighted that relationships between blood flow, mechanotransduction, and the localization of arterial lesions can be advanced by the incorporation of new technologies and the refinement of existing methods. A powerful palette of investigative approaches is available to address fluid mechanics issues, after combining the traditional cell with moleculer technologies.
