Advances in laboratory instrumentation for cardiovascular research have provided scientists with a multitude of technologies for monitoring function in both anesthetized and conscious animals in vivo. Functional assays using isolated heart preparations, vessels, and cardiomyocytes provide additional layers of scientific investigation, all contributing to a deeper understanding of basic cardiovascular physiology, cardiomyopathy, translational science and potential treatment modalities for heart related illness. The purpose of this webinar series is to provide an overview of current trends and advancements in the field of preclinical cardiovascular research.
