Beth Habecker, Ph.D., a professor in the department of physiology & pharmacology, will present a lecture titled, "Post-infarct remodeling of cardiac sympathetic nerves and arrhythmia," at the International Society for Autonomic Neuroscience meeting in Germany this summer.
The Habecker lab is investigating the molecular mechanisms that underlie changes in cardiac sympathetic nerves after myocardial infarction and how those neural changes contribute to the development of arrhythmias and sudden cardiac death.
The International Society for Autonomic Neuroscience (ISAN) comprises researchers, medical professionals, academics, industry professionals and students working with the autonomic nervous system. The ISAN facilitates communication between those working in this area of neuroscience and to raise the profile of autonomic neuroscience.
