2009 NHLBI-T15 Short Course successfully concludes another year


The 2009 NHLBI T15 Short Course on Integrative Computational Modeling of the Cardiac Myocyte, held July 20-24 at the Mt. Washington Conference Center, was a resounding success. The course was taught by a team of three ICM faculty and five graduate students. Fifteen participants, including engineering faculty, physicians, and graduate students came together to learn and implement key concepts in biological modeling. At the conclusion of the course, participant Lawrence Sherman commented, “This is the best course that I have attended in my 30 year professional career as an Emergency Physician. It impacted directly on my research interest in the treatment options for patients with Ventricular Fibrillation, a direction I have been pursuing for the past 10 years and will allow me to move ahead in this area at a much greater rate.” The short course will be offered again in the summer of 2010.
