The ESC Working Group on Cardiac Cellular Electrophysiology provides a friendly and informal environment favouring free exchange of ideas in the fields of cardiac ion channel physiology, excitation-contraction coupling, myocardial electrophysiology and related fields of cardiac physiology and pathophysiology.
New members are welcome to join the Working Group and participate in its activities.
The major goal of the Working Group is to foster exchange of scientific information in the field of cellular electrophysiology.
The annual meeting is a forum for presenting new and unpublished data with emphasis on informal discussion. The younger scientists get the opportunity to present their work and are encouraged to actively participate.
The WG has been the catalyst for collaborations and exchange visits between European laboratories, as well as for establishing joint research proposals within the EC.
At the annual meeting of the ESC, the WG contributes overview sessions of the latest developments in the field of cellular and molecular aspects of ion channel function, covering the basic properties as well as the clinical perspectives.

The European Working Group on Cardiac Cellular Electrophysiology was founded in 1978 by Prof. E. Coraboeuf (Paris) & Prof. E. Carmeliet (Leuven), and this first nucleus soon also included Prof. S. Weidmann (Bern).
The first meeting took place in Leuven, bringing together all labs of Europe investigating the properties of the cardiac action potential and the underlying ionic currents. This first meeting was attended by some 100 people, and the major goal was to share scientific information in order to advance research in a quickly developing field.
The passing of one of the founders, Prof. Coraboeuf, in September 1998, was fittingly remembered by a symposium organised by Prof. R. Fischmeister in Paris, in September 1999.The meeting brought together scientists from all over the world, and demonstrated the immense progress that has been made in the field over the last 25 years.Some 10 years after its founding, the Working Group became a member of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC).
