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).
