From Gene to Channel: Biogenesis of the Ion Channel Network and Arrhythmogenesis

Wednesday, May 9 | 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.

The Basic/Translational Science Forum, designed in partnership with the Cardiac Electrophysiology Society (CES), will provide a comprehensive overview on the state-of-the-art studies on ion channel regulation. Specifically, the sessions will focus on the role of transcriptional networks underlying cardiac conduction as well as the trafficking, scaffolding and post-translational regulation of ion channels. This year’s forum will feature the Douglas P. Zipes Lectureship Award presented by Connie R. Bezzina, PhD.

B-BS01. Transcript Regulation and Transcript Networks

Session Description: Multiple studies have focused on ion channel function at the membrane in relation to arrhythmogenesis. Here, we explore the biogenesis of the ion channel networks as a key point potentially responsible for the origin of arrhythmias.

B-BS02. Translation and Trafficking of Ion Channel Complexes

Session Description: Arrhythmia mechanisms have been extensively studied from the perspective of ion channel function. Here we look at the biogenesis of the ion channel protein complexes and, in this particular session, aspects related to translation and trafficking.

 

Cardiac Electrophysiology Society (CES)

Don't miss the all day program hosted by the Cardiac Electrophysiology Society (CES) at Heart Rhythm 2018. Open to all Heart Rhythm 2018 attendees!

CES members, in good standing, are invited to mingle at the Cardiac Electrophysiology Society Luncheon and Young Investigator Awards Competition on Thursday, May 10 at noon.  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 on the CES website.

 

B-SP07. The Cardiac Conduction System: Session I
Thursday May 10 | 10:40 a.m. - noon

Session Description: This session will focus on the cardiac conduction system. The CES meeting allows for an opportunity for networking and for updating knowledge on a hot topic of interest to basic and translational scientists interested in this area.

B-SP13. Cardiac Electrophysiology Society Luncheon and Young Investigator Awards Competition 
Thursday, May 10 | 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.

B-SP16. The Cardiac Conduction System: Session II
Thursday, May 10 | 2 - 3:30 p.m.

Session Description: This session will focus on the cardiac conduction system. The CES meeting allows for an opportunity for networking and for updating knowledge on a hot topic of interest to basic and translational scientists interested in this area.

 

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

B-004. Arrhythmogenic Cardiomyopathy (AC): Nature vs. Nurture

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

B-041. Custom-Tailoring Ablation Procedures Based on Cardiac Imaging

Session Description: An expert in the physics of cardiac imaging provides an overview of key advantages and limitations of the approach. Then, a diverse groups of researchers discusses the most recent advances related to integration of imaging techniques with procedures in the EP lab.

B-061. Chronobiology of Heart Rhythms

Session Description: The session will teach the participant about the chronobiology of the heart rhythm.
