Cardiac & Vascular Coursework & Clubs
Cardiac & Vascular Pathophysiology Course (PHYB 518): The course focuses on the fundamental mechanisms and pathogenesis of impaired cardiac and vascular performance. The pathology and function of diseased cardiac muscle and the circulatory system are detailed in relation to normal states of health, and therapeutic interventions for the disease are discussed. The faculty presenting include a mix of both clinicians (MDs) and basic scientists (PhDs).

The Heart Research Journal Club examines heart muscle literature on physiology, biophysics, cell and molecular biology etc. The Journal Club sessions operate during the Spring and Fall semesters and we typically meet the first Wednesday of every month from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm. You are all welcome to present a research article of interest for the discussion group. If you want to present a paper, send me an email indicating the date you would like to present and the research paper you would like to present. Our virtual meetings are informal and there is no need to prepare a slideshow. Our plan is to use most of the time for discussion. Best, Chris
