Basic/Translational Science Programming

Heart Rhythm 2017 has more than 26 sessions specifically tailored to scientists. Discover the latest advances in the heart rhythm field — check out registration and begin planning your schedule! 

Cutting Edge Science in 2017: From New Genes, to Stem Cells, to Sodium Channels Part I-III

Wednesday, May 4 | 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.

The Basic/Translational Science Forum, designed in partnership with the Cardiac Electrophysiology Society, is comprised of state-of-the-art talks relevant to the latest breakthroughs in the genetic basis of arrhythmia syndromes, the utility of stem cells for modeling human arrhythmias, and research on sodium channel localization and function. This year’s forum features the Douglas P. Zipes Lectureship presented by Alfred L. George.


Cardiac Electrophysiology Society (CES)

Don't miss the all day program hosted by the Cardiac Electrophysiology Society (CES) at Heart Rhythm 2017. Open to all Heart Rhythm 2017 attendees!

There will be an opportunity to mingle with other CES members at a luncheon held at noon after the CES Program on Thursday, May 11th.This luncheon is open only to CES members who are in good standing and current with their dues. If you have not paid your dues or are interested in becoming a member ($60 physicians/scientists; $30 graduate students, residents and fellows), you may do so by going to the CES website.


C-028. Cardiac Innervation and Cardiac Arrhythmias: Session I
Thursday May 11 | 10:30 a.m. - noon

Session Description: This session will discuss topics centered on the role of cardiac innervation in arrhythmias, including sympathetic remodeling and arrhythmias and neural control of cardiac arrhythmias. Both mechanisms and potential therapeutic approaches will be discussed.

C-SP12. Cardiac Electrophysiology Society Luncheon and Young Investigator Awards Competition 
Thursday, May 11 | noon -  2 p.m.

Session Description:  Over a light lunch, participants will discuss, in the format of a poster session, new studies on the basic science of cardiac arrhythmias.

C-SP16. Cardiac Innervation and Cardiac Arrhythmias: Session II
Thursday, May 11 | 2 - 3:30 p.m.

Session Description: Continuing on the theme of the role of cardiac innervation in arrhythmias, this session will cover neurocardiology, as well as, autonomic ablation in the treatment of cardiac arrhythmias. Continuing along our bench-to-beside approach, other topics will include results from clinical trials of neuromodulation as well as renal denervation and stellate ganglion ablation for inherited cardiac arrhythmia syndromes.


Basic/Translational Science Program will feature four Translational Electrophysiology sessions:

C-051 Arrhythmogenic Cardiomyopathy - Advances and Controversies

Session Description: To review current knowledge about diagnosis, treatment and disease mechanisms in arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy.

C-099 Calcium Dysregulation in Inherited Arrhythmias: What is new?

Session Description: This session will present an update on the link between calcium dysregulation consequent to gene variants/mutations, and increased risk of sudden death in the young.

C-124 Fibrosis and AF Mechanisms: What's New?

Session Description: A diverse group of researchers explores complex links between fibrosis and AF mechanisms. Then, a clinician explains how these insights can influence the delivery of care to patients.

C-143 Cardiac Sarcoidosis: How to Improve Diagnosis and Treatment, and Advance Understanding of Disease Mechanisms

Session Description: To review the current understanding of cardiac sarcoidosis and develop approaches and priorities for future advancement in diagnosis and treatment.
