Cardiac Arrhythmia Mechanisms The Surprising Heart: A Hetero-Cellular, Multi-Physics, and Inter-Disciplinary Challenge
2015-03-22 to 2015-03-27
Lucca (Barga), Italy
The Specific Aims of the conference are the following:
- To bring together established and young investigators who study the mechanisms of cardiac arrhythmias from interdisciplinary perspectives.
- To assess our current understanding of cardiac arrhythmia mechanisms, emphasizing systems approaches which integrate information across multiple scales, from multiple cell types, obtained using a broad range of techniques, to project from gene and molecule to cell, tissue, organ, and organism, including human, using integrated experimental and computational methods.
- To highlight neglected areas in our understanding of cardiac arrhythmia mechanisms and to identify and prioritize novel research directions.
- To use the critical mass of attendee excellence to improve existing strategies and develop innovative new approaches to treating and preventing cardiac arrhythmias as a leading cause of death in our society.
- To bridge the real or perceived divides between levels of investigation, foci of cardiac activity (e.g. electrics and mechanics), employment backgrounds (academia, hospital, industry), geographies, gender, ethnicity or age groups, and thus to consolidate the cardiac arrhythmia research community with the view of enhanced collaboration and, ultimately, success.
Canadian Cardiovascular Congress
2015-10-24 to 2015-10-27
Toronto, ON, Canada
The Canadian Cardiovascular Congress is the largest gathering of cardiovascular and allied health professionals in Canada. This event brings together the individuals who work across the spectrum of cardiovascular health - from research to patient care and stimulates interaction within the cardiovascular community. It is a forum to showcase the best research and to promote learning - through scientific sessions, interactive workshops, late-breaking clinical trials, and lively debates.
