OHSU’s cardiology division is offering a new course on the Genetics of Cardiovascular Development and Disease for trainees. The course is required for cardiology fellows and postdocs in the NIH-sponsored training program for Cardiovascular Research and Translational Science, but it’s also open to postdocs, fellows and graduate students who are interested in genetic and epigenetic aspects of cardiovascular development and diseases. The course consists of 10 lectures from 12 to 1 p.m. in Multnomah Pavilion room 5502, starting Thursday, August 25, 2011.
- August 25 – Introduction to cardiovascular genetics (Maslen)
- August 31 – Molecular basis of hypertrophic and dilated cardiomyopathy (Maslen)
- September 21 – Genetic basis of cardiac arrhythmias (Zhou)
- October 5 – Molecular mechanisms of congenital and drug-induced long QT syndrome (Zhou)
- October 19 – TGF beta signaling and cardiovascular system (Weiss)
- November 2 – Genetic disorders of cholesterol and non-sterol isoprenoid synthesis (Steiner)
- November 16 – Notch signaling and inherited vascular diseases (Weiss)
- December 7, 2011 – Molecular pathways of coagulation, thrombosis, and vascular biology (Kim)
