We will present 3 different projects at the ESC 2018 meeting in Munich.
Magda Fontes will present her work on biological defibrillation in the diseased adult rat heart during one of the poster sessions.
Emile Nyns will share his latest results on termination of atrial fibrillation by local optogenetic gene therapy.
Finally, and proudly, Niels Harlaar will present, for the very first time, his project on conditional immortalization of human atrial cardiomyocytes. Curious to know how large we can grow our monolayers from these cells? Come and visit his poster.
These studies have been supported by a Vidi grant from the The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO), a Starting grant from the European Research Council (ERC), and a Less Animals-More Knowledge grant from NWO.
