PBIO 540: Cardiac Remodeling
This 5-week mini-course will discuss recent advances regarding molecular mechanisms of cardiac hypertrophy, myocardial remodeling, and heart failure progression. Novel methodologies in basic and translational cardiovascular research will also be covered. Topics include cardiac hypertrophy, myocardial remodeling and heart failure, myocardial cell death pathways, and animal models of heart disease. By the end of this course, students are expected to understand the mechanisms of cardiac remodeling and its implications in heart disease. This course will also help student improve their skills in project development and data presentation.
