The Working Group provides a platform for both basic and clinically-oriented scientists with interests in any aspect of myocardial function to meet in a friendly and stimulating atmosphere.
The Working Group focuses on the molecular, cellular and integrative mechanisms underlying physiological function and malfunction of the heart, and is the ideal group for anyone interested in applying knowledge of fundamental cellular and molecular processes to the integrative biology of the heart, both experimentally and clinically.
Reports on the Annual Meeting of the Working Group on Myocardial Function and the Working Group on Cellular Biology of the Heart
The Working Group, in partnership with scientific associations, offers access to educational initiatives:
A joint initiative with the Fondation Leducq.
Several members of the Working Group on Myocardial Function are also members of a transatlantic network funded by the Fondation Leducq.
In addition to collaborative projects in basic cardiovascular science, this network has regular progress meetings and offers training positions for doctoral/post-doctoral researchers in top-level laboratories in cardiovascular sciences on both sides of the Atlantic.
