***The lecture will be simulcast via videoconference in 299 VCRC (401 E River Parkway)***

Lunch and beverages will be provided.

Learning Objectives:
The broad expression of homologous channels in multiple tissues offers opportunities to translate and generalize discoveries about cardiac channelopathies to other diseases. This seminar will explore new insights into the roles of ion channels in cardiac pathophysiology and how these insights reveal disease mechanisms in other tissues.
