Thank you very much to all participants, demonstrators and presenters!
Methods in Cardiac Research 2015 presented PhD students to commonly used methods in cardiac research through lectures and practical demonstrations.
Main topics of the course:
- Methods in molecular biology, such as Northern blotting, real-time qPCR, immunolocalisation, microarray, Western blotting and ELISA.
- Methods in cellular biology, such as cell isolation and cell culturing, patch-clamp, calcium imaging, as well as quantification of receptors and intracellular signaling pathways.
- In vivo and ex vivo testing of cardiac function in research animals, such as pressure-volume measurements, echocardiography, telemetric ECG survaillance and cardiac surgery in laboratory animals.
- Cardiac examination of patients, such as ECG, echocardiography, MR, CT, SPECT.
