Basic/Translational Science Programming

Join us at the forefront of research and innovation during this year’s Basic/Translation Science program. Hear from current and emerging leaders who are making some of the most important scientific discoveries today. During presentations and poster sessions, you’ll discuss tomorrow’s solutions to cardiac arrhythmias and engage with the mentors and mentees that form our scientific community.

Heart Rhythm 2019 has more than 18 sessions specifically tailored to scientists. Discover the latest advances in the heart rhythm field — check out registration and begin planning your schedule! 


Basic Translational Science Forum - Omics, Informatics and Population Science: Big Data Analysis to Study Heart Rhythm

The Basic/Translational Science Forum in conjunction with The Cardiac Electrophysiology Society will give the attendee a broad exposure to the latest methods of electrophysiology research. From electronic medical records to various omics methods, it has become clear that the discovery bottle-neck is not in the ability to obtain large volumes of data but rather, on our ability to interpret and extract, from an ocean of data, the specific information that is valuable for a particular case. Throughout the various sessions of this day, we examine this problem taking different angles in the omics, population science and informatics spectrum.
