Understanding the heartbeat at the nanoscale / William Louch, Professor, University of Oslo

Time: 28th October 9:15-10:15:

Place: University of Copenhagen (Panum Institute, Faculty Club 16.6.16)

New advances in super-resolution imaging have allowed unprecedented insight into the structure and function of cardiac muscle cells. This talk will summarize emerging ideas of how contraction of these cells is regulated by the nanoscale arrangement of calcium handling proteins, how this system develops in the immature heart, and how it is disassembled during disease. 

William Edward Louch is originally from Canada. He is PhD and became professor at University of Oslo in 2015. He currently leads a group of researchers aiming to identify cardiomyocyte-level mechanisms of cardiovascular disease with particular emphasis on the structures and proteins which control calcium homeostasis. He endeavours to develop and test novel therapies, to relieve the disease burden for patients and society.
