While the immune response to a single cardiac event has been well researched, few have reported on whether an adaptive immunity is observed after repeated cardiac injury. Here, we discuss a recent publication from Tiwary et al., in which they investigate the cytoprotective response after multiple cardiomyopathic injuries.
Key opinion leaders in cardiovascular physiology and bioengineering discuss best practices and challenges when modeling cardiomyopathies and other cardiovascular diseases using stem cells, engineered tissues and other novel platforms.
The Muscle Health Research Centre (MHRC) is one of Canada's leading innovators in muscle physiology research. In this blog post, we continue our series of interviews with student researchers at the MHRC and learn more about their research objectives, findings, and goals.
Join Michiel Helmes and Diederik Kuster as they demonstrate best practices and new techniques in high-content, higher throughput investigations of excitation-contraction coupling in isolated cardiomyocytes.
Ronglih Liao and Davor Pavlovic discusses techniques for isolating cardiomyocytes using both traditional and Langendorff-free methodologies, including key considerations, best practices and how to achieve and confirm optimal myocyte quality.
