EMBO Workshop: Cardiomyocyte Biology. VIRTUAL CONFERENCE
In 2021, the conference will celebrate its 10th anniversary. The cardiomyocyte, the fundamental contractile unit of the heart, represents the focus of the conference. We will discuss latest findings on how cardiomyocytes can be replaced after injury in regenerating species and to which extent this feature can be mimicked in mammals.
This meeting will particularly highlight epigenetic and epitranscriptomic regulation of cardiac homeostasis and disease. Furthermore, we will learn how the metabolism, immune system and cardiac fibroblasts influence cardiomyocyte physiology. Our aim is to not only better understand the origin of disease but also to hypothesize about possible therapeutic approaches.
