Conference Description

Cardiac arrhythmias are the major cause of mortality and morbidity in the developed world. Yet, the mechanisms of deadly arrhythmias remain to be elucidated. The main goal of this biannual Gordon Research Conference is to explore the fundamental mechanisms of the most complex arrhythmias, including atrial and ventricular fibrillation. New approaches to diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of cardiac arrhythmias will require the use of highly sophisticated tools that, in many cases, would consist of combinations of multiple technologies including novel imaging modalities, genetics, molecular and structural biology, tissue engineering, immunochemistry, patch-clamping, optical and high density electrode mapping of electrical wave propagation, and computer modeling. This field is represented by outstanding investigators at the forefront of research and experts in molecular biology, cellular electrophysiology, biomedical engineering, mathematics and clinical cardiology. This conference provides a forum to interact and share ideas about the role of numerous factors in the mechanisms of complex cardiac arrhythmias and sudden cardiac death.

What is a GRC? Gordon Research Conferences (GRC) are 5-day meetings that bring scientists together from around the world to present and discuss unpublished research with other leaders in their field.

Related Conference

This Gordon Research Conference (GRC) series is related to the "Cardiac Arrhythmia Mechanisms" Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) series. Although a related GRS will typically be scheduled in conjunction with its parent GRC each time it meets, that may not always be the case. Refer to the individual meetings in the Meeting History section below for more details. For more information about the associated Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) series, click here.

What is a GRS? Gordon Research Seminars (GRS) are 2-day meetings that bring graduate students and post-docs together to discuss their cutting edge research among peers and mentors. Each GRS immediately precedes an associated Gordon Research Conference (GRC), and topics addressed at the GRS relate closely to the GRC.
