The Heart Rhythm Society welcomes members of the Cardiac Electrophysiology Society (CES) as they gather for a half-day program at Heart Rhythm 2016.
The scientific program Sodium Channels – Structure, Function, and Disease Mechanisms (Part I and Part II) takes place from 8 a.m.-noon Thursday in Room 135, Moscone North, and is open to all attendees. It features presentations by leading experts on the cutting edge of new developments in a particular area of scientific discovery, covering the spectrum of basic, translational, and clinical research. The program includes the Gordon K. Moe Lectureship as well as additional presentations in the fields of Purkinje cell development biology, electrophysiology, genetics and therapies.
The Basic/Translational Science Forum The Future is Now: Cutting Edge Methods for Electrophysiology Research (Parts I, II, and III), designed in partnership with CES, takes place from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Wednesday in Room 135, Moscone North. This full-day forum is comprised of state-of-the-art talks relevant to the role of optogenetic techniques, novel imaging methods, and the latest advances in genomics. This year’s forum emphasizes the broad exposure to the latest methods for electrophysiology research, and features the Douglas P. Zipes Lectureship presented by Charles Antzelevitch, PhD, FHRS.
